    Named after the early pioneer leader Daniel C. Davis the County was established as a territory in 1850.The territorial legislature created Davis County in 1852 and designated its County seat at Farmington-midway between boundaries-the Weber River on the north and the mouth of the Jordan River on the south. Westward the County includes a portion of the Great Salt Lake-its largest island on which Antelope Island State Park is now located.During first half-century Davis County grew slowly.It supported a hardy pioneer people engaged in irrigation agriculture and raising livestock.The Utah Central Railroad(now the Union Pacific crossed the County from Ogden on the north to Salt Lake City on the south in 1870 and offered welcome transportation links to bring manufactured products.This was the beginning of a transition in the County's history that led to mechanized agriculture, a surge of commerce, banking, and local business along with improved roads, new water systems, and the electrification of homes and business
