In 1862, Orson B. Adams settled in Harrisburg, Utah. He and his family were part of a movement by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also known as the Mormons, to create a self-sufficient colony in the west. The Mormon settlers were "called" to establish agricultural towns throughout southern Utah and west to the Pacific and grow crops such as grapes and cotton.
