Taylorsville, Utah is made up of the historic communities Taylorsville, Bennion, and Kearns.

While Taylorsville is still one of Utah’s newest cities, the area has a rich history reaching back to 1848 when pioneers Joseph and Susanna Harker crossed over the Jordan River and founded the Taylorsville-Bennion areas originally referred to as “Over Jordan.”
