Bear River City is a city in Box Elder County, Utah, United States. The population was 853 at the 2010 census, an increase over the 2000 population of 750. The population was sufficient under Utah state law for Bear River to become a city near the end of 2000. Although current state law requires a minimum population of 1000 for cities, Bear River City remains a city.
Bear River City was first settled by a group from Brigham City in 1866. The city took its name from the nearby Bear River.
Farming was the mainstay of the residents. They raised a lot of canning crops, tomatoes, peas, corn, and beans. Now the crops are almost all hay and grain or silage corn for the beef and dairy animals. However, farming is no longer primary employment of many residents. Many now work at ATK (Formerly Thiokol Corporation), NuCor, and other nearby industries. There are several small family businesses in town. There have been a few stores come and go, but one small country store adjoining the post office is all that remains as larger cities have taken over merchandising.
