Though not technically in the same metropolitan area as Salt Lake City, it is in effect a bedroom community of Salt Lake City and the surrounding area. Many residents who work in Salt Lake choose Bountiful for its relatively laid-back and family-oriented lifestyle, as well as for lower home costs. Utah’s second oldest non-Native American community, it was founded in 1847 by Perrigrine Sessions, a Mormon pioneer. The oldest continuously used Mormon chapel is located here. The community was called Sessions Settlement until 1855, when the present name was selected, probably from the Book of Mormon.
The original portion of the city and downtown are located at the base of the Wasatch Range, which rises high to the east, overlooking the city. Most of the residential neighborhoods climb high up the slopes of the mountain. To the west lies a flatland that extends to the Great Salt Lake and the mudflats and marshes that border it.
