History of North Salt Lake, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia (Links Added)

Animals of all kinds were raised in the area. A family named Schmidt raised pigs; Samuel S. Howard raised cows and in about 1879 began his own dairy, known as "Bountiful Dairy." Holbrook Dairy was later established near the Salt Lake County line and continued until the late 1950s. Products from Bountiful and North Salt Lake dairies were taken into Salt Lake City for sale.

Sarah Howard ran a store out of her home, and William Luker created a "Halfway House," a store-restaurant combination where travelers could refresh themselves. The trail along the edge of the hills and above the hot springs turned into a well-traveled road and later became U.S. Highway 89/91.

In 1895 Leary and Warren established a business called Salt Lake Union Stockyards which made cattle important to North Salt Lake. The stockyards were located near the railroad tracks. There was pastureland available and the convenience of the railroad for shipping. Cattle were shipped into the area and either shipped out again or slaughtered for market at one of the area slaughterhouses.
