History[edit]

Honeyville was first established in 1861 when a ferry was put across the Bear River at this location. In that same year Anson Call built a sawmill in Honeyville. He later sold the mill to Abraham Hunsaker. The place was known as Hunsaker's Mill until it was organized as an LDS ward named Honeyville in 1877. Hunsaker was the branch president in Hunsaker's Mill and then the bishop of the Honeyville Ward until 1889.[4]
