The United Order Movement was born in Brigham City, Box Elder County, in 1864. After Brigham Young observed Brigham City's cooperatively owned flour mill, woolen mill, dairy, pottery shop, tin shop, brush factory, mercantile, public works and education departments, he decided to duplicate the United Order in over 200 cities in Utah, Idaho and Arizona.
On May 20, the Utah State Historical Society and the Utah chapter of the Society for Urban Archeology will sponsor a tour of historic United Order sites in Brigham City. Cost of the day-long tour, including bus ride to and from Brigham City, is $30 ($25 for Historical Society members). For information and reservations call Julie Lewis at 533-5755.
