Learn more about Layton Utah
The City of Layton began in 1850 as an agricultural extension to the settlement that later was incorporated as Kaysville, Utah. The original boundaries of what was called Kays Ward extended from Haight’s Creek on the south to the Weber County line and the Weber River in the north, and from the Wasatch Mountains on the east to the shores of the Great Salt Lake on the west. Although the settlers of Kays Ward eventually laid out streets and established a typical town plan and city center in 1854, the area that is now Layton remained rural, unorganized and unplanned during this early period.
Because Layton was an outgrowth of Kaysville, the settlers did not build their homes around a city block plan or a central fort. When fort districts were established in 1854 and 1855, for protection, the people living along Kays Creek contributed money and labor to the building of the Kays Ward fort. However, these settlers never lived in the Kays Ward fort area but built their own stockade that was called “Little Fort.” This structure was built on the east side of Kays Creek, south of what is now known as Fort Lane Street.
In 1886, with the establishment of a Post Office, the area that was previously known as Kays Creek became Layton. The name Layton was given to the community in honor of Christopher Layton an early LDS bishop and property owner along Kays Creek. In 1907, the people living in Layton officially separated from Kaysville and a new town was born.
