History

In 1862 ranchers came to Long Valley, the land east of Zion National Park, to graze cattle along the East Fork of the Virgin River. Robert and Isabella Berry named the area now known as Glendale, Berryville. In 1866 when the Berry’s were killed by Indians, the settlers left. It was in 1871 that the Mormons, from the Muddy River settlement in Nevada, came to settle naming the town Glendale. By the 1800’s the Mormon communities in the area had grown in the nearby towns of Orderville and Mt Carmel Junction., Glendale became part of the United Order. The United Order Movement was a program of economic and moral reform begun in 1874 under Brigham Young. On March 29th, 1935 Glendale became an incorporated town. Orderville was the longest existing united order.
