Henrieville was named for James Henrie, although neither he nor any of his three wives ever lived there (and all four were buried in Panguitch, where'd they'd long lived except for the years James spent in Fredonia with his third wife while hiding out from Federal authorities looking for prominent polygamists, and he was one).

Henrieville was settled during the years while James was the first President of the Panguitch Stake, before he became a Patriarch of the Church. As President of the Stake he'd been responsible for organizing new settlements, seeing to the occupation of more countryside, raising tithes for the church and generally setting an excellent example for other Mormons to follow.

Henrieville was incorporated at the same time as a number of other settlements in southern Utah. The major impetus for the incorporations was to make it possible for a community to access Federal funds to expand and modernize local water distribution systems.
