The state of Utah was populated by Indian tribes (Utes and Navajos) when in 1776 Spanish missionaries penetrated the territory to Lake Utah. Mormons, persecuted for their religious beliefs, settled in the region from 1847 and, led by Brigham Young, founded Salt Lake City there.

The United States did not take possession of the region, which belonged to Mexico, which, following the Guadalupe Hidalgo treaty (1848), which ended the American-Mexican war. In 1849, Mormons issued an application for admission to the Union. This was delayed by the difficulties that exist between Mormons and the federal government, namely regarding polygamie acceptance by the Mormon Church. From 1862, the United States government encouraged the immigration of No.mormons, who flocked to Utah after the inauguration of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. When it became Utah, it was finally admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896, as the forty-fifth American state.

The state's economy prospered rapidly at the beginning of the twentieth and century thanks to the irrigation of practiced Mormons and the development of mining and the foundry industry. After World War II, the federal government, which owns 60 p. 100 from Utah, replaced military facilities (missile production). The discovery of uranium and oil deposits, followed by the installation, in the early 1990s, of high-tech activities also maintained important economic and demographic growth, thanks to a very positive migratory balance.
