Learn Brigham City early history at library
If you are interested in the early settling of Brigham City and its history, come to the Brigham Library on Wednesday, September 18, at 7 p.m. to learn about the city's founding fathers, Lorenzo Snow and William Davis, and their families.
Why and how they came here? How did they live once they were here? How did Brigham City became the prototype for settlements across the state.
Kathy Bradford, a local historian, will be presenting the program that will tell the story of these men and how they contributed to the settlement that became Brigham City.
This presentation is a cooperative effort of the Brigham Library, the Museum-Gallery, and “Pioneers in Your Attic,” a pioneer legacy digital project sponsored by the Utah Academic Library Consortium and Mountain West Digital Library. This project is collecting materials on the development of the West, especially the overland migration (1842-1869).
Bradford covered the news in Box Elder County for the Desert News for six years and has worked for the Brigham City Museum-Gallery as writer and research specialist of Brigham City history for 16 years. She has completed over 400 oral histories of local citizens. She will be covering the colonization of Brigham City up to Utah’s statehood in 1896.
