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

Historical sites and points of interest in the area include the best-preserved portion of the Pony Express Trail in Utah (at the Point of the Mountain). Indian Ford at the Jordan River and Dugout--a Pony Express and Overland Trail station--are also located west of town. Seven People's Co-op buildings, once part of the ZCMI chain, remain in Lehi. The two most significant were recently recognized by ZCMI, which installed two replicas of the 1869 ZCMI sign on the building fronts.

Other important Lehi institutions include Broadbent's (since 1882), Lehi Roller Mills (since 1905), the Lehi Free Press (since 1932), Hutch's (since 1946), the Lehi Cafe (since 1958), La Casa Supper Club (since 1964), Porter's Place, named for the notorious Porter Rockwell (since 1971), and the Colonial Manor (the 1913-built Smuin Dancing Academy). The Colonial House, originally Racker Mercantile, is now a beautifully restored reception and hosting center.

The Lehi Memorial Building, the first municipal structure in America specifically erected to honor the memory of World War I veterans, is to be the home of the Hutchings Museum, which has won state and national accolades for the depth and variety of its collection.
