Brigham City, Utah, Archway Sign

Brigham City

The Brigham City Archway Sign was dedicated in 1928 during the Peach Days harvest celebration, with speeches and band music before the lights were turned on. In 1984, the sign was replicated with improvements.

Brigham City, Utah

Brigham City was settled in the early 1850s and originally named Box Elder, but later changed its name to honor Brigham Young, second president of the LDS (Mormon) Church. You'll instantly notice its small town feel, despite citified additions like motels, convenience stores, and graceful golf courses. Brigham City has many historic buildings, including a dignified, pillared courthouse with a clock in its dome, and a Mormon Tabernacle. West of Brigham City is ATK, where the solid rocket boosters used to propel the space shuttles are manufactured. The town is an excellent gateway to Golden Spike National Historic Site, where the U.S. was joined by rail in 1869. Across Brigham City's Main Street, an arching sign, approaching antique status, proclaims the city to be gateway to the "World's Greatest Bird Refuge." Indeed, the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, and the new James V. Hansen Wildlife Education Center, are a must for birding enthusiasts. It is an impressive place for viewing and listening to everything from ducks to colorful songbirds. Brigham City is also famous for Peach Days, a community celebration each September.
