Farmington is a city in Davis County, Utah, United States. It is part of the Ogden - Clearfield, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 18,275 at the 2010 census and was estimated at 22,159 in 2014. It is the county seat of Davis County. Lagoon Amusement Park is located in Farmington.The city was ranked 12th on Money magazine's "Best Places to Live" index in 2011.HistoryThe region that is now Farmington was settled in 1847 by the Haight family, a Mormon pioneer family, that established a farm and an inn. Five more pioneering families migrated to this region in the autumn of 1849. The region developed into an undefined community originally called North Cottonwood Settlement. In 1852, the territorial legislature picked North Cottonwood as the county seat and officially named it Farmington. Following orders from Daniel H. Wells and Brigham Young, Farmington residents built a wall around the city in 1853 under the direction of Major Thomas S. Smith. This walled townsite became known as "the Fort". Early church meetings were held in a log school and then an adobe structure. The county courthouse was used for religious meetings from 1855 to 1863. The city's ward moved back to the schoolhouse and the first meetinghouse was dedicated in January 1864. By the early 1860s, the town of Farmington stretched for six miles between Centerville and Kaysville.
