Layton Real Estate

    History

    Layton was originally an extension of Kaysville and was initially included in the boundaries when the city of Kaysville was incorporated in 1868. In the 1880’s, the residents of the area wanted separation from the city of Kaysville. The dispute reached the United States Supreme Court and in 1894 it was decided in their favor. Layton became an independent unincorporated area until 1920 when the city finally became an incorporated town. 

    Hill Air Force Base was built to the north in 1940 which led to a huge population increase. Layton quickly went from being a small farming community to a bustling residential area. Located 25 miles north of Salt Lake City, Layton is the most populous city in Davis County.
