The Heber Valley was originally discovered by Native Americans, who used it as a summer hunting ground. In 1859, a group of Mormon pioneers arrived from Great Britain. The Mormons settled just one mile north of the city’s present location and named it “London.” As the city grew in population, the town was renamed in honor of the group’s beloved leader, Heber C. Kimball.
