Orderville, Utah

History

Orderville was settled in March 1875, as an experiment in communal living promoted by Brigham Young.  It was the most successful community of its kind. Not only were all things owned by the order in common, but the community ate together in a common dining hall where food was served from the common kitchen.  The community prospered until the 1880s when challenges caused the order to be discontinued in 1890.  Orderville became an incorpated town in 1935.
