Welcome to Nibley
The first settlers arrived in the Nibley area in 1855, sent there by Brigham Young to tend to his cattle herds after the Cache Valley had been granted to him by the Territorial Legislature expressly for that purpose. The settlement didn't fare very well for a long time but eventually, a town formed and Nibley was incorporated in 1935. The town was named for Charles Wilson Nibley, presiding bishop of the LDS Church in 1907. Incorporation of the town was forced by local efforts to secure a loan from the Federal Public Works Administration to fund improvements to the water system.
Historically a rural area, Nibley's population has nearly doubled since 2000.
