1920 • Layton City Centennial • 2020

The year 2020, marks the centennial anniversary of the incorporation of Layton City. Layton began as a small farming community that was an extension to the area that is now Kaysville, Utah. In 1920, Layton City was incorporated as its own town and over the next 100 years Layton City developed into the thriving metropolis it is today, and has grown to become the largest city in Davis County. In commemoration of the Layton City Centennial, the City is preparing for a fun-filled and event packed year to celebrate the last 100 years that shaped Layton City into a wonderful community.
