Welcome to Deweyville

Deweyville is a small rural town nestled along the foothills of the western slopes of the Wasatch Mountains. Originally known as Empey Springs, it was founded by John C Dewey in 1864, making it one of the earliest settlements in Box Elder County.  Descendants of John C Dewey still live in the community today.

The community is bordered on the north by Cedar Ridge Subdivision and on the south by Honeyville.  Highway 38, once one of the main routes connecting Tremonton to Brigham City and points south, runs through the middle of town and provides a scenic alternative to the heavily traveled interstate.  This farming community is home to approximately 500 people.  Access to the nearby Bear River and Crystal Hot Springs make it an enjoyable place to live.  At one time, there was a railway station and hotel. Today, some of the main industries include dairy farming, sheep ranching, and cabinet shops.  
Many people who work and shop in nearby Logan, Brigham City and Tremonton, enjoy living in this community that is known for its beautiful scenery, friendly people, and small town atmosphere.

Deweyville Town has openings for two Council Members for the upcoming election.  Filing dates start June 1 and will close on June 8 at 5:00 p.m.  Any Deweyville resident interested in one of these positions will need to file in person at the Deweyville Town Hall during business hours (Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am to 2pm) and before June 8 at 5:00 p.m.
