Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)

AVON

Avon (Cache) is a small agricultural community on U-165 eleven miles south of Logan and three miles southeast of present-day Paradise. It was settled in 1860 and originally known as Paradise, but was abandoned in 1868 because the settlers were having trouble with the Indians. Mrs. Orson Smith named the community in honor of Avon, England, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
