This northern Utah County city had several names before it was incorporated in 1852 as Lehi, after a Book of Mormon prophet.

The first Mormon settlers entered the area known then as Dry Creek in the fall of 1850. They renamed it Evansville after David Evans, a bishop in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was also called Sulphur Springs and Snow’s Springs. The settlers divided the land into 40-acre plots and newcomers flocked in until the tract was exhausted. They diverted some of American Fork Creek to water the arid land.

Highlights include Lehi Main Street Historic District, designated by the National Park Service and is on the National Register if Historic places. The city is also known for Lehi Roller Mills, which dates to 1906 and the more recent Thanksgiving Point with its many attractions. The city covers just under 27 square miles with a population of less than 60,000 as of 2015, according to the Census Bureau. Family median income is about $58,000.

In recent years several high tech industries have moved into Lehi, including IM Flash Technologies, Adobe Systems, Ancestry.com, Microsoft and others.

The median price for a home sold in late 2016 was $411,995 with an average price of $419,820, according to the Wasatch Front Multiple Listing Service.
