The Founding of Enoch, Utah
In 1850, Enoch was founded by Joel H. Johnson. He discovered springs in Enoch and received permission to build a house and take care of the cattle that were owned by settlers of Iron County. After Johnson settled in the area, Brigham Young asked other families to help with building a fort for protection. The fort was named after Johnson and in 1890, the Johnson’s Fort area became known as Enoch.
