While Mormons still predominant, religious diversity is found in Uintah. Two LDS Wards share a new chapel constructed in 1989, and the Combe Road Foursquare Church are located within the town boundaries. Other townspeople attend church services at Protestant and Catholic congregations in near-by communities.

For a small place, Uintah has produced its share of illuminaries. Bernado De Voto, the famous American author; the Wattis and Corey Families of internationally known Utah Construction Company; and Art Combe, the "Wizard of the Wasatch" have all called Uintah home. Art Combe, the founder of Valley Nursery earned the nickname for his development of over 100 new plant varieties and his reputation plant husbandry. George E. Kendell, who for many years ran Kendells Service at Uintah Junction became one of Northern Utah's most prominent businessmen and millionaires.

Uintah has weathered many east winds, a flood in 1952 and two population booms and busts. As the town enters into its third population boom, the prospects for a prosperous future seem bright.
