Utah is a state. It was never invented, it was settled and then officially founded. The first settlers were Native American Indians, who have made the Utah area their home for thousands of years. Various explorers came in the early 1800's, and the first permanent white settlers in the area were Mormon pioneers, who arrived in 1847. The boundaries of Utah were redrawn several times between 1850 and 1896, when Utah officially became a state.
