      On Aug , homesteading began in earnest on the former Uintah Reservation. Early Settlement. The settlement of Duchesne County is unique in Utah history, for unlike much of the state, it did not occur under the direction of Brigham Young or the Mormon church. Rather, it was settled by individuals who obtained acres under the. Settlement. Ashley Valley (where Vernal is) lay outside the reservation. Ranchers and farmers had begun to settle there, and by , the valley had enough people that the territorial legislature created Uintah County, taking most of the land from Wasatch County.

        Doris Karren Burton has a deep-rooted history in the history of Uintah County. She was born in the county, and her grandparents and great-grandparents were instrumental in the settlement of Vernal, Utah. Thirty years ago Mrs. Burton retired as director of the Uintah County Library to establish the Regional History Center. On 1 September homesteading began in earnest on the former Uintah Indian Reservation. The settlement of Duchesne County is unique in Utah history, for unlike much of the state, it did not occur under the direction of Brigham Young or the Mormon church.

      Uintah County's economy rests on farming, ranching, and the removal of oil and gas. It is increasingly influenced by worldwide energy prices. Uintah High School located in Vernal and Union High School, which serves residents of both Uintah and Duchesne County, is located exactly on the county boundary on the eastern edge of Roosevelt. The settlement of the Uintah Valley is entirely "knocked into pi." The pioneer party write back to this city that the valley is by no means the Paradise it has been represented.
