History

The title "Utah Agency" may be a bit misleading. There were actually two agencies called by that name, operating under the jurisdiction of the Utah Superintendency from 1849 to about 1869.

The initial agency was the Salt Lake Agency, which was established in 1849. When the Territory of Utah was organized in 1850, the Salt Lake Agency became the Utah Superintendency. In 1851, one agency was established and in 1855, another was established. The two agencies existed at the same time and the agents had no specific assignments, but one usually operated out of Salt Lake City and the other out of Provo.

The agency established in 1851 was generally headquartered in Salt Lake City until 1859 when it was moved to the Spanish Fork Reservation for the Ute Indians. In 1865, it was moved to the Uintah Valley and came to be known by that name.

The other agency, established in 1855, was headquartered in Provo, and was moved to Fort Bridger. It became part of the Wyoming Superintendency and was renamed the Fort Bridger Agency.

A third agency, established in 1858, existed for a short time under the Utah Superintendency as the Carson Valley Agency, but it was transferred to the Nevada Superintendency in 1861.[1]
