History of Hatch, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia. (Links Added)

Hatch (Garfield County) is between Panguitch and Long Valley Junction on US-89.

In 1872 the town of Aaron, also called Asay, was settled near the mouth of Asay Creek.

Other early settlements in this area along the Sevier River, Asay Creeck and Mammoth Creek were Proctor, Castle, Johnson, and Hatchtown. Hatchtown was settled by Meltiar Hatch Sr., and his two wives, Parmelia Snyder Hatch and Mary Ann Ellis Hatch.

Flooding and other problems forced these early communities to group together and settle one and one-half miles south of Hatchtown. This single community then took the name of Hatch, which was incorporated on January 3, 1934.
