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


Kelton (Box Elder) was twenty miles off the northwest corner of the Great Salt Lake. It was originally on the Central Pacific Railroad as a stage and freighting station, with hotels, saloons, post office, and homes. After the Lucin Cutoff was built across the lake, Kelton faded into a ghost town. It had an early name of Indian Creek. The settlement was named after a Mr. Kelton, a local cattleman.
