How did Mormon get to Utah?
The vast majority of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) in the years 1847-1910 traveled to and settled in Utah. At the time, converts to the church were expected to move to Utah if possible. They moved there any way they could afford - by foot, handcart, horse, or wagon until 1870, and typically by train after that time. Since World War 1, converts to Mormonism are encouraged to stay in their hometowns rather than move to Utah.
