Lehi was settled in the mid-19th century and incorporated as a city on 4 January 1981. The city's population has grown rapidly since the late 1990s. The area where Lehi is located was first explored by members of the Dominguez–Escalante Expedition in 1776, although other explorers visited the area over the next fifty years. Early settlers began to move into Utah Valley in 1851 due to its proximity to Salt Lake City, which had been founded twelve years earlier; however, permanent settlement did not begin until 1868 when brothers Daniel and Andrew Peterson built a cabin along Spanish Fork Creek near present-day Springville using lumber from nearby canyons for construction material. In addition to farming and agriculture (primarily orchards), they also used timber cutting and mining stone from areas surrounding Utah Lake for building materials. They later sold their property after rumors of possible annexation by California surfaced, with land being purchased by various families between 1870 through 1896.
