We Buy Houses Cash in Sunset, Davis County
Sunset is located in northern Davis County. It is bordered by Hill Air Force Base to the east, Clearfield to the south, Clinton to the west, and Roy in Weber County to the north.
The sunset/clinton area was originally used by the mormon pioneers as a place to feed and graze animals during the cold winter months. It was first known as “sandridge”, “the range”, “the basin” and the summit.’ the first known permanent settlement was started in the 1800’s by the James hill family. Their home and small farm was located in the area where the old sunset city hall was located. Other early settlers were the peter terry, Chauncey Hadlock, Mark Elmer, James Burnett, Thomas Steel, James Mitchell and during terry families. Most of these early settlers came west with the mormon pioneers and some of their descendants can still be found living in the Davis county area today. The area was called summit until approximately 1896 when it was changed to Clinton. In approximately 1916 several ladies living in the area were viewing the colorful sunset over the great salt lake. They were so impressed with the beauty of the sun setting over the lake to the west, they decided to name the area where they resided “sunset”. Shortly after, this area of homes and farms separated from Clinton and became known as the community of sunset. The little town became incorporated in 1935, resulting in a residential type community in the war years (1940’s), with homes being built as a result of the government development of the ogden arsenal and hill air force base directly east of the town area. Sunset stayed at about 600 residents until the 1960’s & 70’s when many additional homes and subdivisions were built, bringing the population to about 6,000 people. Because of it’s limited geographic size (1.9 miles by .6 miles) the city has become almost fully developed and has very little open land left for substantial residential development. Sunset’s home market is in demand and price average from a median price to well over that.
