Mormon pioneer William Davis first explored the area what was to become Brigham City in 1850. He returned with his family and others a year later to create permanent homes. The President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, Brigham Young, directed Lorenzo Snow to create a self-sufficient city at the site in 1853. Snow directed both religious and political affairs in the settlement, eventually naming it Box Elder in 1855. Brigham Young gave his last public sermon there in 1877 shortly before his death, and the name of the town was then changed to Brigham City after the church president. Brigham City is known for its peaches and holds an annual celebration called Peach Days on the weekend after Labor Day. Much of Main Street is closed off to cars, and the festival is celebrated by a parade, car show, carnival and other activities.
