Fairfield is a town in Utah County, Utah, United States. It is part of the Provo - Orem, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is located in the southwest corner of Cedar Valley about southwest of Salt Lake City and south of Cedar Fort on Utah State Route 73, west of Utah Lake. The population was 119 at the 2010 census.HistoryThe town was founded in 1855 when John Carson, his four brothers, and others settled in the Cedar Valley. The settlement was soon known as Frogtown. The population ballooned after the arrival of Johnston's Army in 1858-59, sent to Utah to suppress the rumored rebellion there. The army established a nearby camp called Camp Floyd, and the population grew to over 7,000, including 3,500 troops (nearly one-third of the entire U.S. Army at that time), teamsters, gamblers, and camp followers of various persuasions. With no rebellion taking place, the troops were recalled in 1861, sent east to fight for the Union with the outbreak of the Civil War.Frogtown became Fairfield in 1861, named after Amos Fielding, who had participated in establishing the community.The Stagecoach Inn, located in Fairfield and now a museum, was used by travelers passing through via stage coach, military personnel, and riders on the Pony Express trail.Arrange all the small, but important details of your Fairfield trip itinerary using our United States day trip planning app.
