Mona, one of the early settlements along the Old Mormon Road, was originally settled in 1852. First named Clover Creek for patches of wild clover that grew along the creek in the area. It was later renamed Willow Creek for its water source, then Starr for a local settler, before receiving its present name.

Burl Ives was once jailed in Mona for singing "Foggy Foggy Dew", because it was considered bawdy by the authorities.
