Inscription.  Mayfield was first considered a settlement in 1873 when our pioneers brought their families from Gunnison to occupy the log cabins they had erected on the north side of Twelve-Mile Creek. In 1875 a townsite New London, on the south side, provided for several young families from Ephraim. On July 4, 1877 a union was effected when the Mayfield LDS Ward of the Sanpete Stake of Zion was organized.

The name, Mayfield, was chosen because of the natural beauty of Arropeen Valley in Maytime. The Indians called this area, Aw-wan-ah-voo, revering it as a place of ancient fortification.

Our heirloom bell rang out for curfew, warnings, celebrations, and called children to school. The fire fighting equipment, manned by volunteers, served the communities needs before 1960.
