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

LOFGREEN

Lofgreen (Tooele) was settled in 1898 by Herman Lofgreen (Lofgren) along the Union Pacific Railroad track going south from Lake Point. In earlier days there was a small schoolhouse in the settlement. The residents earned their living by breaking wild horses and working as section hands for the railroad. The settlement was abandoned after creosote was discovered, since this greatly reduced the demand for section hands. (Applying Creosote to railroad ties keeps them from rotting.)
