Pioneers associated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints formed a wagon train named, Mississippi Company, and traveled to the Salt Lake Valley in 1947. The travelers eventually found their way to present-day Holladay. It is the oldest continuously inhabited Utah settlement because Salt Lake City was abandoned briefly in 1857 when Johnston’s Army occupied the city. Although Holladay was fully incorporated in 1999, early settlers lived there from the late 1847s. Native Americans called the area their home long before.

A group of settlers led by John Holladay established their settlement on the east bench below Mt. Olympus. It’s an area central to Salt Lake County now. The village was originally named Holladay’s Burgh or Holladay’s Settlement.

“Within weeks after their arrival [to the Salt Lake Valley], they discovered a free-flowing, spring-fed stream, which they called Spring Creek (near what is now Kentucky Avenue),” according to a Wikipedia article titled Holladay, UT. “While most of the group returned to the main settlement in Great Salt Lake for the winter, two or three men built dugouts along this stream and wintered over. Thus, this became the first village established away from Great Salt Lake City itself. In the spring, a number of families hurried out to build homes and tame the land. There were numerous springs and ponds here and grasses and wildflowers were abundant, making this a desirable area for settlement.”


Holladay is known for its magnificent mountain views. The community is located right at the base of the Wasatch Mountains and those mountains perform a new art show daily with shifting light and magically-changing seasons. Each of the four seasons is expertly illustrated by the mountains that reflect the slightest transition in brilliant foliage, and wandering wildlife.

The classic tree-lined streets reflect the seasons’ changes too. Safe neighborhoods, friendly neighbors, and local shops make this a very walkable community. City administrators recognize walkability as a great attraction and have steered the development of the magnificent city center toward becoming an undeniably foot-friendly atmosphere.

Residents tend to have a much higher family income than the national average and schools here get rave reviews.
