A Brief History of Daybreak
The first known inhabitants of the Daybreak area were nomadic hunter-gatherers in the Desert Archaic Culture. The Fremont people settled into villages to grow corn and squash from 400 AD to 1350 AD, but they left as the climate cooled and dried and ancestors of the Ute, Paiute, and Shoshone peoples arrived on the scene.
No permanent Native American settlements remained in the Salt Lake Valley when the Mormon pioneers reached it in 1847. The first settler in the area was Alexander Beckstead, a Canadian blacksmith who helped dig the first ditch to divert water from the Jordan River to power a flour mill. His family lived in a dugout cut into the bluffs above the river.
Cities like West Jordan, South Jordan, and Herriman grew up in the area, but it wasn’t until 2005 that the community of Daybreak came under construction. When completed over the next couple of decades, it is expected to contain more than twenty thousand residential units.
