Brigham City Co-op
Site Number 74

Brigham City was the first important Mormon community to
organize itself for cooperative activity under a system later
incorporated in the United Order of 1874. Approximately 30 or 40
industry branches were established with the aim of providing
employment for everyone in producing & manufacturing what
they consumed & used. The co-op began as a joint stock enterprise
with Elder Lorenzo Snow & three others subscribing 3000. From
1864 to 1880 the following co-op industry branches were established.
