Town #55: LEHI est. 1850
Lehi is the northernmost town in Utah County and the 6th oldest town in Utah. In its earliest days it was called Sulphur Springs, Dry Creek and Evansville. The settlers finally settled on the name of Lehi, named after the Book of Mormon prophet. Lehi's biggest industry for several decades was sugar beets. One of my favorite restaurants, Porter's Place, is in Lehi. They play turn of the century piano music there. Lehi also has some of the worst traffic in Utah.
