Mendon

About this collection

"...the town Mendon epitomized the landscape of the village type in significant ways. Like a page from the past, it was situated on the west sid e of Cache Valley snug against the Wellsville Mountains. In company with other pioneer Mormon settlements, it was located to take advantage of water, arable land, climatic attributes, and to some degree, with an eye to Indian relations and accessibility to other communities." 

    --From Charles S. Peterson's "Introduction" to the book History of Mendon: a Pioneer Chronicle of a Mormon Settlement by Isaac Sorenson

 

This digital collection contains a myriad of historical documents and photographs pertaining to the settlement and history of Mendon, Utah.  Much of what is preserved here was rescued from temporary storage in the attic of the Mendon Firehouse by Richard Watkins, a longtime Mendon resident who applied for a grant to fund their digitization.
