Kaysville is a city in Davis County, Utah, United States. It is part of the Ogden–Clearfield, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 20,351 at the 2000 census.

History

The Kaysville area was originally settled by Hector Haight shortly after Mormon pioneers arrived in 1847. He had been sent north to find feed for the stock and soon thereafter constructed a cabin and brought his family to settle the area. Farmington, Utah, also claims Hector Haight as its original settler. Two miles north of Haight's original settlement, Samuel Holmes built a cabin in 1849 and was soon joined by other settlers from Salt Lake, namely Edward Phillips, John Green, and William Kay. [ [http://www.kaysvillecity.com/about.history.html Kaysville history] . - City of Kaysville]

Although settlement began in the 1840s, the name of Kaysville connects with the fact that in 1851 William Kay was made the bishop in the vicinity by Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball.

After the move south in 1858 (see Utah War) there was an attempt to rename the community Freedom, but Brigham Young convinced the residents to retain the old name.

In 1868 Kaysville became the first city incorporated in Davis County.

An adobe meetinghouse was built in 1863. It was replaced by the Kaysville Tabernacle in 1914. In 1930 Kaysville had 992 people. They all were in the Kaysville Ward which also covered most of the rest of the Kaysville Precinct. [Jenson, Andrew. "Encyclopedic History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints", p. 394-395]

By 2008 there were seven stakes in Kaysville. [ [http://www.lds.org/units/find/search/1,16055,2311-1,00.html LDS Church website list of Kaysville stakes] , accessed May 3rd, 2008]
