This blink-and-you’ll-miss-it town is one of several unincorporated cities in Sanpete County. The area consists mostly of farmland, lending a lot of privacy to those who call Axtell home.
Settlers started moving into Axtell in 1870. They named it Willow Creek originally, but changed the name to honor Governor Samuel B. Axtell in 1876. Life here was not unlike other newly settled areas. People prepared the land for farming, built homes and log buildings and even put together a school. Much of the information about the town’s early days can be found on a monument below the Original School Bell.
