(Farr West City Hall)
Approximately 6,100 people call Farr West home. Located on the north end of Weber County, Farr West is bordered by Willard to the north, Harrisville and Pleasant View to the east, Marriott-Slaterville to the south, and Plain City to the west. Farr West was settled by Mormon pioneers in 1858, and was largely a farming community. Over the years, the number of farms has decreased, and the city has become more urban. It was incorporated in 1981.
The Farr West Recreation Center has a full-size exercise room, basketball gym, volleyball set-up, Zumba classes, and sports programs. Some of the community events include an annual Easter Egg Hunt in April and the Farr West Freedom Festival in the summer, which includes events such as a baby contest, booths, 5K run, two-mile walk, parade, movie night, and more. The Senior Center offers classes and activities such as power walking, quilting, Bingo, a Wii bowling tournament, oil painting, a foot clinic, a monthly birthday party, and game nights. The City of Farr West maintains a Facebook page in an effort to keep residents informed and involved.
Smith and Edwards makes its home in Farr West and draws crowds from all over northern Utah. The variety store opened in 1947 when Bert Smith and Lawrence Edwards began selling military surplus equipment out of Smith’s West Ogden backyard. Today, several of Smith’s sons and grandchildren still work for the business. Smith and Edward’s offers an eclectic mix of goods from military surplus, hard-to-find tools, jewelry, clothing, coats, hunting gear, toys, housewares, camping equipment, emergency preparedness items, and so much more. This 171,000 square foot store also boasts a knowledgeable and experienced staff and is affectionately known as “The Country Boy Store.”
A warm, freshwater reservoir at Willard Bay State Park, located 11 minutes north, offers a close location for camping, boating, swimming, waterskiing, and fishing. The Golden Spike Event Center is only five minutes away, with soccer fields, an outdoor stadium, a cross country course, and more. The Weber County Fair is a fun family tradition, and the fairgrounds are just north of the Golden Spike Event Center.
