Living in Orem, UT

Orem was named after Walter Orem, the owner of the railroad that ran between Salt Lake City and Provo in the early 20th century. Prior to its incorporation in 1919, Orem was known as the “Provo bench” because of its fertile orchards and farmlands. Residents recognized a need to create a regulated water system because Orem did not have an abundant natural water source, and issued more than $100,000 in bonds to fund the construction. The city was not laid out in the manner consistent with nearby towns, and instead consisted of homesteads and farmlands interspersed along crisscrossing rural roads.

Orem has undergone three major evolutions since its creation. In the early 1940s, the federal government built Geneva Steel Works along the eastern shore of Utah Lake, which opened many jobs for local residents and generated significant revenue for the city. Concerns about environmental damage led to the sale and ceased operations of the plant. The second evolution came later in the century when many local farms were converted to shopping malls and other commerce centers. The final phase commenced with the city’s new identity as a center of technology and development. Today, Orem still holds that distinction, and has become a family-friendly community with strong local business opportunities.
