Green River is a small town in Northeastern Utah.


The town was first settled in 1876 when a ferry was set up on the East side of the river. In 1883 when a train station was opened, the east side of the river became known as Elgin while the west side of the river was named Greenriver (later changed to Green River). Today the town has a population that hovers around one thousand.
