Cache County, Utah was created in 1856 and organized the next year. It was named for the fur stashes made by many of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company trappers.
The Cache Valley and surrounding mountains are located in the county, which reaches up to the Idaho border. The Bear River Mountains, the northernmost extension of the Wasatch Range, which reach as high as 10,000 feet (3048 m), cover the eastern half of the county. The Bear River flows through Cache Valley. Wellsville was the first European settlement in the county, settled by Peter Maughan in 1853. As of the 2010 Census the population was 112,656. Its county seat and largest city is Logan.
