Interim County Coordinator - Jane Colmenares

Welcome to Clark County


Welcome to 2013.  I invite you to contact me if you have any Clark County related photos, data or website links you would like to have added to this site.  Clark County was established ninety-four years ago on February 1, 1919, from the parent county of Fremont, encompassing a total land area of 1,764 square miles.  Clark County was named for the first State Senator from Clark County, Sam  K. Clark, an early settler on Medicine Lodge Creek.

The County Seat is Dubois, named for United States Senator Fred T. Dubois who served as a Republican Senator from 1891-1897, and then a Democratic Senator from 1901-1907.  Spencer, the second largest town in Clark County was named for Hiram H. Spencer, shipper and President of Ogden Rapid Transit. Spencer had property in the Jefferson District (2555 Jefferson) in Ogden, Utah, was also manager of the Eccles Lumber Company, and a Vice-president of Amalgamated Sugar.  Our thanks to Bonnie Stoddard, county Historian who has researched considerably on the history of Clark County.
