Comments:

Chicken Creek is a ghost town in Juab County, Utah.

Remains:

Two families from Nephi established a ranch on Chicken Creek, in 1860. It was located 14 miles south of Nephi along the Mormon Road. By 1864 it had grown into a settlement called Chicken Creek and had acquired its own post office. In 1868, the town of Levan was established upstream 3 miles northeast of Chicken Creek.

Current Status:

By 1871, Levan’s success as a farming community led to Chicken Creek gradually being abandoned. Its post office was closed in 1876; only a few ruins of foundations and fireplaces remained.
