Welcome to Frisco ...

So far, we have found very little information about Frisco. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

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


Frisco would have been located within present day Beaver County<2>.

Frisco was established in 1879.

While the community is gone, the present day location for Frisco is 6,420 feet [1,957 m] above sea level.<3> In other words, the altitude of Frisco is about 1¼ mile [or ~2 km] above sea level.

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

Note: If you leave Frisco and travel west, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).

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 Frisco, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Beaver, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Frisco - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Frisco) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Frisco. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from FriscoOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Frisco. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.4601, Longitude: -113.2600    
<5>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<6>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<7>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. 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 maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
