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

Davis County Central High, located on the north/south center point of Davis County, opened in the fall of 1914. In 1978 the Davis Area Technical College opened on a large campus just east of Davis High School.

Clover Club Potato Chip Company was established by Newell ("Hod") and Clover Sanders in 1938. Although the company was recently sold to Borden Foods, the plant continues to operate, providing jobs for many Kaysville residents.

While Kaysville was becoming an established community, a smaller city, Fruit Heights, was developing to the east. Known for its cherry orchards, Fruit Heights incorporated in 1939 to enable the people living in the unincorporated parts of the county to bond for a water system. Today Fruit Heights has a population of more than 4,300 people.

With the beginning of World War II and the establishment of Hill Air Force Base and the Naval Supply Depot, a demand was created for housing in Kaysville, Layton, and Clearfield. Kaysville began to change from an agricultural community to a suburb. This steady urban growth pattern has continued to the present time.
