How Washington City was started

Many families left their homes in Northern Utah to start a new life and hopefully live their religion in peace and harmony. Brigham Young chose 38 families and they arrived in Washington City area on April 15, 1857.  Many people suffered from diereses and hunger. Today the area is called Utah’s Dixie.
