Situated in Utah County, Utah, the city of Orem calls itself “Family City USA”. It was originally called Sharon, which was the name of the town in Vermont where Joseph Smith was born and which was taken from the biblical town of Sharon. Orem is not laid out like most towns in Utah. While most cities and towns are laid out in regular city blocks with closely situated houses, Orem was set up as homesteads which were settled among the territory highway and other arteries where farmers built homes in order to live next to their farmlands.
