Mendon, Utah is located in northern Utah’s beautiful Cache Valley. Mendon was to be the first of the new cities established in the Cache Valley, during this year of renewed expansion and colonization, following the peaceful conclusion of the so called, “Utah War” of 1858. As the second community to be founded in Cache County, she was for a long time the gateway into and out of the Cache Valley. The majority of the pioneers entering the Cache Valley during this time, would do so over the low divide, just north of Mendon proper. Mendon was at first referred to as the “North Settlement,” in those early times, being north of Maughan’s Fort. The name of North Settlement was used more or less until December 19, 1859 when Apostle Ezra T. Benson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, named her Mendon.
