Early Utah pioneers passed through the area that is now Green River
and decided that the land would not support a farming community.
The Farrer family did not agree with this assessment, however, and
they opened one of the first stores in Green River around 1883.
Always a diverse town, Green River has a long-standing tradition of
religious tolerance and the coexistence of different faiths. John
Wesley Powell passed through during his exploration of the Colorado
and Green Rivers, and the local museum was named after him. The
region's economy has seen booms and busts, having survived on
uranium mining and the missile base as well as on agriculture.
Friday night football and the old opera house have come and gone,
and now tourism has become Green River's main industry as travelers
from all over the country discover the incredible beauty of the
eastern Utah landscape.
