The location of Bingham









Welcome to Bingham ...

We've added Bingham to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Bingham, please Contact Us.


Bingham would have been located within present day Salt Lake County.

We aren't confident of the location of Bingham, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

Bingham was established in 1863 and was incorporated February 29, 1904.

The origin (or the toponymy) of Bingham: Named after Thomas and Sanford Bingham, brothers who were early settlers in this area.

Time Zone: The area where Bingham was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Bingham, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<3>Area code (385) is an overlay for area code (801).

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bingham) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bingham. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bingham

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bingham. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.5584, Longitude: -112.1305     [Map].
