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

VERMILLION

Vermillion (sevier) is ten miles northeast of Richfield. In 1874, white settlers established this small agricultural community on the west bank of the Sevier River. The community had an earlier name of Neversweat because of the midsummer humidity and heat. It was renamed Vermillion because the settlement was adjacent to Vermillion Mountain. The brilliant red coloring of the mountain inspired Brigham Young to name it on October 8, 1876.
