Learn more about Draper Utah
In the fall of 1849, Ebenezer Brown brought cattle to graze along the mountain stream of South Willow Creek. The next spring, he brought his family and sold his cattle to immigrants heading to the gold fields of California along what became the Mormon Road. More settlers came in the next few years to the new settlement first known as Sivogah, meaning Willows, the Indian name for the area, then later as South Willow Creek. At the end of 1852, 20 families lived along South Willow Creek. In 1854, the first post office was established with the name Draperville for William Draper III, the first presiding elder of the town's Mormon congregation. The name of the town in later years was shortened to Draper.
Draper lies roughly midway between Salt Lake City and Provo. Draper is bordered by Riverton and Bluffdale to the west, South Jordan to the northwest, Sandy to the north, Alpine to the southeast, Highland to the south, and Lehi to the southwest.
Draper's climate is roughly identical to that of other Salt Lake City suburbs. However, due to being further away from the Great Salt Lake, varied elevation, and from the downtown urban heat island effect, Draper experiences a slightly drier winter, and more extremes in temperatures. The average temperature in Winter and Summer are 30°F to 50°F, and 80°F to 100°F. Springs are usually mild and wet, while fall can sometimes become an Indian Summer and drier weather. Monsoonal moisture from the South usually brings afternoon thunderstorms July and August.
