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

The Kays LDS Ward was established in September 1851 with Kay as bishop and Phillips and Green as his counselors. The boundaries of the ward went from Farmington on the south to the Weber County line on the north. Few people lived outside of the immediate area around the city center of present-day Kaysville.

As part of its missionary movement, the Presbyterian Church established a church and school in Kaysville in 1881. The church continued until 1917, although the school closed in 1909. The Presbyterian chapel is still standing, the only example of an early Protestant church remaining in Utah.

With the formation of fort districts in 1854, many settlers living in outlying areas moved into the area's fort, thereby establishing the business and residential districts of Kaysville. Although the businesses have changed over the years, Kaysville still has an attractive city center.
