Beaver is a city in Beaver County, Utah, United States. The population was 3,112 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Beaver County.HistoryBeaver County has a number of identified prehistoric sites, dating to the Archaic and Sevier Fremont periods. A prehistoric obsidian quarry site has been identified in the nearby Mineral Mountains. Southern Paiutes inhabited the region at the time of the first European explorers, the 1776 Dominguez–Escalante Expedition.Settled by Mormon pioneers in 1856, Beaver was one of a string of Mormon settlements extending the length of Utah. These settlements were, by design, a day's ride on horseback apart, explaining the regularity of today's spacing: either apart, or apart where intervening settlements failed or were absorbed.Beaver was first created in 1856 from Iron and Millard Counties. Twelve men with families were sent by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) to settle Beaver by an LDS leader named George A. Smith (not to be confused with his grandson George Albert Smith). It was decided to organize a company and start a settlement on the Beaver River. Those selected to pioneer this work included Wilson Gates Nowers, Simeon F. Howd, James P. Anderson, Horace Alexander, Charles Carter, Barney Carter, Joseph Goff, James Low, John Knowles, John M. Davis, Beason Lewis, James Duke, and John Henderson. Before Utah was an official state, Beaver was established as a county in 1886 by the legislature of the Utah Territory.
