The first European people to conscious in the Place were the Latter-day Saints. The Euro-Americans arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. The area was first staked out by settler Joseph Harker and his relatives in the area they named as “over Jordan” (referring to the estate west of the Jordan River, which runs through the valley).
