Newton was first settled in 1869 by Mormon pioneers. In 1871 they constructed a bridge across the nearby Bear River and soon saw many folks relocating from Clarkston to Newton.

Another early project taken on by the pioneers was the construction of the Newton Dam on Clarkson Creek, about a mile north of town. It was the first large irrigation project in Utah and perhaps the largest irrigation project in the United States at the time (1872).
