Herriman is a family-oriented community with a rich history!  From it’s beginning as Fort Herriman in the early days of the pioneers, to its recent growth and development, Herriman is definitely to be one of the best kept secrets in southwestern Salt Lake County.  Herriman was incorporated in 1999 with a population of just 1,523 in the 2000 census, and has since seen rapid growth.  As of the 2010 census, Herriman’s population had boomed to 21,785, and continues to grow steadily today.  Herriman shares borders with Riverton to the east, South Jordan to the north, and Bluffdale to the southeast.  Herriman City covers 20 square miles.

Ski Resorts

We wouldn't be very good Utahns if we didn't mention the great skiing available! Utah is known for having some of the best powder and ski resorts in the world. Most of them are less than an hour's drive away from Draper.

Herriman was established in 1849, by Robert Dansie, Henry Harriman, and Thomas Jefferson Butterfield, although not incorporated until 1999. A monument located in the Herriman City Cemetery lists the original four families of Herriman as the Thomas Jefferson Butterfield, John Jay Stocking, Robert Cowan Petty, and Henry Harriman families.  These same families erected Fort Herriman in 1854 as an adobe fort to protect Mormon settlers from hostile Indians.  By orders from Brigham Young, and it was abandoned in 1858 as Albert Sidney Johnston's Army approached.
William Charles Crump was an English immigrant who wanted to join the Saints gathering in Utah. When he arrived in Utah, he was assigned to Taylorsville to help build up the settlement there and construct a fort as protection from the Indians. He also served as a guard at the south point of the valley and also on the west side. In the fall of 1853 Brigham Young asked for families to go to Butterfield Settlement (later named Fort Herriman), and provide strength to this struggling settlement. William volunteered and later helped build the fort there.
