Page was established in 1957. It was initially a housing camp for workers building the Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River. In 1958, a larger tract of land was obtained from the Navajo Indian tribe. This led to the birth of a Government Camp, which later became the town of Page. The city got its name from John C. Page, a commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation. Page was officially incorporated on March 1, 1975.
