Hauns Mill was a Mormon community built with a mill owned by Jacob Haun. During the Mormon War, thirty to forty families gathered in this area for safety. On 30 Oct 1838, 250 militiamen under Colonel Thomas Jennings attacked the community, killing 18 and wounding another 13 men, women and children.
Today, nothing remains of this community which was located just east of Far West in Caldwell County.
