History

In 1858, trapper Aaron Daniels moved to a place on the Provo River just north of where Charleston is today.[4]

The first farmers put in crops at Charleston in 1859, and the first house was built by William Manning late that year. Manning and George Noakes were the only residents until 1863, when a few others moved in. In 1866, there were about a dozen families, and after that, the population began to grow even faster.[4]

Noakes was the first Presiding elder in Charleston. Until 1877, the branch was part of the Heber Ward. The Charlston Ward was formed in July 1877, with Nymphus C. Murdock as bishop. The ward had 397 members in 1930, with 467 people living within the ward boundaries.[4]
