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


Honeyville (Box Elder) is on U-69 ten miles north of Brigham City and south of Deweyville. It was first settled in 1861. An early name for the settlement was Hunsakerville for the local Mormon bishop, Abraham Hunsaker, a beekeeper. The community name was changed to Honeyville, some say to honor the profession of their bishop, and others say to remind them of their location, which was like Canaan-a land flowing with milk and honey. A combination of both of these reasons is more realistic.
