Life in Layton

Layton, Utah is a city located in Davis County. It has a population of about 60,000 people.

Layton, Utah is named after Christopher Layton, a Mormon missionary and early settler of the region. In the decades after its founding, Layton's growth in population and wealth was slow but steady. However, the establishment of Hill Air Force Base nearby, followed almost immediately by America's entry into WWII, led, almost overnight, to a huge spike in population, changing the face of Layton forever. War workers streamed into the area, transforming Layton from a small agricultural community to a bona fide city.

After the war, growth slowed, but continued to be fueled by the growth of nearby Salt Lake City, for which Layton is now a major "bedroom community" (a town on the outskirts of a much larger city, serving largely as a residential area for people who work in the city).

Thanks to its proximity to Salt Lake City, Layton is home to a thriving legal community. If you are facing a legal issue, there is almost certainly a Layton, Utah lawyer who can help you solve it.
