Fort Utah was the name of the first and second forts built in Provo when the settlers arrived in 1849.
The first fort was located south of the Provo River near where I-15 crosses the Provo River today. The original fort consisted of a number of log houses surrounded by a 14 foot tall palisade that was about 110 ft. wide and 220 yards long. The fort had gates at the east and west ends, and an elevated deck in the middle for a cannon. After the first year of flooding, the fort was relocated northeast of the original site, to where the present day North Park is located.
