History

Dayton is an outgrowth of Weston. There was a stage station on the Montana road at an early day near the point where Deep Creek empties into the Bear River, about five miles northeast of the present village of Dayton. George M. Mendenhall family was the first settlers in 1868. In 1872 other settlers came to the area at this time it was called Franklin Meadows. This settlement was also called Five Mile Creek, later Chadville in honor of Joseph Chadwick, and then changed to Dayton. The total population was 721 in 1930.
