History

The Uintah Valley Indian Agency was established in 1865 with the move of the Ute Indians to northeastern Utah. It was a continuation of the Spanish Fork Agency. By 1882, two agencies existed in the Uintah Valley -- the Ouray Agency and the Uintah Agency. These two agencies existed for a very short time and by 1886 were combined into the Uintah and Ouray Agency at Fort Duchesne, Utah.
