Settled in 1856 by Mormon Pioneers, Beaver City is today home to an estimated 2,511 residents and roughly 500 more outside the city boundaries. Situated 200 miles south of Salt Lake City along Interstate 15, Beaver is the County Seat and the largest city in the county. Beaver is also the birthplace of two very famous individuals of the past, Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of television and Butch Cassidy, the notorious western outlaw. Some of the most beautiful scenery in the West can be found near this tranquil agricultural community and outdoor wonderland. The high alpine vistas of the Tushar Mountains, which includes Delano Peak (seventh highest peak in Utah at 12,169 ft.), are to the East. Color Country, encompassing Bryce, Zions and the other National Parks lies just a few miles to the South. To the West, are the Mineral Mountains, a favorite of rockhounders, and the Minersville Reservoir State Recreation Area.
