Which city is known as the Mormon city?
Maybe you are thinking of Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake City is the location of the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (also called the "Mormon" Church).
I would definitely not call Cedar City the first non-Mormon town in Utah. Cedar City was established by Mormons in 1851 and has had a Mormon majority population ever since.Several other towns in Utah were "non-Mormon" towns, such as Ogden (established by fur trappers a year before the Mormons arrived) and Park City (originally settled by Mormons but became a mostly non-Mormon mining town in the 1860's).
A Mormon is defined as a member of the religion that is formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known more succinctly as the LDS Church. The name Mormon is taken from the title of the founding book of the religion, written by Joseph Smith, which is entitled the Book of Mormon.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) does not release membership statistics for cities, only for states. So we don't know exact the Mormon population of Salt Lake City in 2004, but it was probably around 30-40%. The city itself has quite a low Mormon population compared to the rest of the state.
The Mormon Trail was traveled by Mormon Pioneers from Illinois to Utah after they had been kicked out of Illinois. It was then traveled by Mormon converts from Europe and Canada as they immigrated to "Zion" (the Mormon settlements in Utah). The trail was mostly discontinued after the railroad reached Salt Lake City.
The Mormon Trail ended in Salt Lake City, Utah. Originally, there was nothing at the end but an empty desert valley and a really stinky salty lake, but the pioneers began building a city, so that by the time people stopped traveling the Mormon trail (due to the railroad coming), there was a big thriving city at the end of thet trail.
The first Mormon pioneers arrived in Salt Lake City in 1847. Groups continued to travel the Mormon Trail to Salt Lake City until the railroad came through in 1869. After that, most traveled by train to get to Salt Lake City. After World War I, Mormon converts were encouraged to stay in their home cities or nations rather than travel to Salt Lake City.

Uh... They don't. I've been a Mormon in Salt Lake City my entire life... I've known literally THOUSANDS of Mormons, and I've only known one that had a twitch. He had a muscular disorder that made him twitch, it didn't have anything to do with his religion. Are you thinking perhaps of the Shakers? or the Quakers?
