Kanab is the County Seat for Kane County
76 North Main St.
Kanab, UT 84741
Kanab began in 1858 as a crude dugout built by the great Mormon frontiersman and Indian missionary Jacob Hamblin. Kanab is derived from an Indian word meaning “place of willows”  A fort was build by Mormon settlers in 1865 as a defense from the Indians and a base camp for travelers and explorers. Three different attempts were made to settle this area with the final succeeding.  A group of settlers from the abandoned Muddy River Mission in Nevada and a few families from the Cottonwood area of Salt Lake City lead by Levi Stewart moved into the locale in 1870.  Citizens elected their first town president and town council in August of 1885.
