Washington Utah was the first settlement established for the purposes of growing cotton. President of the Mormon church Brigham Young asked 38 families, most of whom had journeyed from various southern U.S. states, to settle the “Cotton Mission.” He predicted that cotton would be a scarce resource in the U.S. due to the North and South preparing to enter into war. Soon, the Cotton Mission became affectionately known by the Southerners as “Utah’s Dixie.” The Cotton Factory, built in 1865, still stands today as a testament of the stalwart Mormon pioneers and the hard-earned success of the Cotton Mission.
