From its pioneer settlers and those who came later, this history of Paradise, Cache County Utah, shares stories that resonate as true today as they did for the people who lived through them.
This volume was compiled after years of studious research on the people, places, and events in this small agricultural town in Northern Utah from when Paradise was founded in 1860 through the year 1999, a place Betty was proud to call her "Hometown." The book was written with the hope for this history to enrich the lives of future generations. It is a detailed, thorough record including everything that was important to the community—water, the church, bears, mining, local natives, and the school. Many people have ancestors who resided in Paradise, and they have been very willing to share their stories. Many have written histories to be included in the book; others have abridged histories so they could be included. These histories helped make the book possible. Sources are included in each section to help locate more specific records.
It is a fascinating look into the lives of those who fill our past. "Hopefully, it will make us more grateful for the richness of our lives. Without the early settlers, there would not be this beautiful Valley or Paradise."
