Enoch, Utah is an agricultural city in Iron County, approximately seven miles northeast of Cedar City. Enoch was settled as part of a Mormon iron mission along with Parowan and Cedar City. It was originally called Fort Johnson and Johnson Spring after the first white settler who arrived with his family in 1851.

It was incorporated in 1966, at which time it absorbed the communities of Grimshawville, Williamsville, and Stevensville. Today some 6,600 people call this rural community home.
