History of Stansbury Park
Stansbury Park has an exciting and interesting past. The name, Stansbury, after Capt. Howard Stansbury who helped survey the Great Salt Lake in 1850, is relatively new. The area originally was settled about 1855 around the old Benson Grist Mill site. It was known as Richville, and was the County seat until 1861. Other businesses located beside the mill, and were the typical industries of the times, a tannery and local blacksmith shop. Richville (Stansbury Park) was the center of commerce for Tooele Valley, & Benson Gristmill was the centerpiece. The mill operated until 1940 when it was shut down until 1983 when a group of volunteers began restoration. Today, the restored pioneer era industrial site attracts visitors from around the world.
