There are several hundred Mormon settlements throughout the Western United States with a few settlements in Mexico and Canada. Seeing as the question is in past tense not present tense, I will answer this question based on history. The Mormons settled in Utah near the Great Salt Lake in 1847.

Those are some reasons why it was so hard for Mormons to find a place to settle.

The Mormon Extermination Order was withdrawn in the 1970's and today there are over 60,000 Mormons living in Missouri.

Mormons believe the church that Jesus Christ established on the Earth in the bible was first established in the Eastern United States. 'Mormons' were first in New York, then persecuted out to Kirtland, Ohio, and Navoo, Illinois, then they were persecuted out of those places, and they ended up in Utah.


In the mid 1800's, when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called "Mormons") was attempting to find a land to settle in, church members were kicked out of Kirtland, Ohio; Nauvoo, Illinois; and several areas in Missouri, most notably Jackson County.

Brigham Young became president of the Mormon church when Joseph Smith died. The Mormons needed a safe place to practice their religion. The Mormons had been kicked out of every other place they had tried to settle. At the time, Utah was a part of Mexico, and they wanted to escape the United States government. Also, before Joseph Smith died he told Brigham that the Saints would eventually have to move west to the Rocky Mountains. Because every where else that Mormons tried to settle were chased out and abused. So the Mormons went west to seek a place where they could practice their religion without being provoked.
