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

Myton is on US-40 between Roosevelt and Duchesne. The community has historical significance. The settlement was built at the only bridge crossing the Duchesne River and for this reason it had an early name of The Bridge or Bridge City. For many years it was a well-known trading post. The community received its present name when Major H. P. Myton came from nearby Fort Duchesne to take command as the region was opened to settlers in 1905.
