The Vernon area was settled beginning in 1857. In 1934, a very large incorporated town called Onaqui was created in the area, including Vernon as well as the settlements of Clover and St. John. Vernon was far from the rest of Onaqui, and locals always looked on it as somewhat independent. Vernon residents were granted a petition to incorporate separately on 22 February 1972, and the remaining part of Onaqui was renamed Rush Valley.
