History of Hayden, Utah
Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)


Hayden (Uintah) was three miles east of present-day Neola and ten miles north of Roosevelt. It was a temporary settlement with great plans during the Uinta Basin land rush of 1905-6. The community did not succeed as a settlement but was good cattle land with excellent pasturage and grasslands. The name source for Hayden is indefinite. One cluster of references suggests it was named for its excellent hay and grasslands. Another suggests it was named for the nearby peak named for F.V. Hayden, a noted topographic engineer of early U.S. government surveys. Hayden's party did much of the surveying in this region.
