Bluffdale City was established in 1848. The creation of the Utah Territory was the result of the petition sent by the Mormon pioneers who had settled in the valley of the Great Salt Lake starting in 1847. Bluffdale is a city located in both Salt Lake and Utah Counties. It is about 24 miles south from the City Center of Salt Lake City.
The history of Bluffdale began with a larger area than it is today. It encompassed parts of Riverton, Draper and Herriman. It went as far north as 13800 South, as far east as I-15 in Draper, South to Lehi and West to 5400 W in Herriman City.
