History

Scipio (Millard) was settled in 1859. The town is in oval-shaped Round Valley, thirty-seven miles south/southwest of Nephi, at the junction of I-15 and US-50. Early names included Round Valley and Craball. Then, in 1861, it was named for an early settler, Scipio Kenner. It was in this year that George A. Smith organized an LDS branch in the town.[4] A Fort Scipio also existed here at one time. The nearest town ca. 15 miles southwest of Scipio on I-15 is Holden. About 30 miles south/southeast are the towns of Redmond, Salina and Aurora. About half-way between Scipio and Salina is Lake Scipio on the west side of US-50. To the east lie the Valley Mountains with the highest peak reaching around 8,189' (2,496 m). To the south lie the Pahvant Mountains which rise above 10,000 ft (3,000 m).
