Overview
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. This is a detailed, thorough record including everything that was important to the community—water, the church, bears, mining, local natives, and the school. 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."
