History

Kanesville

The first settlers in what would become Kanesville arrived in 1868. At the time the area was known as Northwest Hooper. Kanesville was named for Thomas L. Kane.[4] The name Kanesville was adopted when an LDS Ward was first organized there in 1882. The first bishop was Peter B. Peterson.

The name is retained by Kanesville School a K-6 school in West Haven.[5] Until October of 2010 the Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the city was the Kanesville Utah Stake. On October 17, 2010 the Kanesville Utah Stake was divided and a new stake, the West Haven Utah Stake, was formed. The old stake retained the Kanesville name.[6]
