Bluffdale is named for its 25 square miles of bluffs and dales. It was first settled about 1848, then part of West Jordan. In 1858 Orrin Porter Rockwell purchased 16 acres of land near the Crystal Hot Lakes from Evan M. Green. The land included a hotel, stable, brewery and pony express station. This was the nucleus of the community that would eventually become the City of Bluffdale. [1]

Bluffdale is a wonderful residential community located approximately 20 miles south of Salt Lake City. Known for its pioneer heritage, pastoral setting, quality of life, and the location of the federal government's new multi-billion dollar Utah Data Center, Bluffdale is strategically located on the border of Salt Lake and Utah counties at the crossroads of I-15, Bangerter Highway, and Redwood Road. Bluffdale has an excellent workforce, a well-educated population, higher than average income, and one of the lowest property tax rates in Salt Lake County. Bluffdale has an excellent water system with excess capacity as well as excess capacity in the electrical substations making Bluffdale an excellent choice for data centers. The new Utah Data Center should encourage additional supportive services to locate in Bluffdale, which will drive increased demand for housing and retail services in Bluffdale. [2]
