Clearfield is a city in Davis County, Utah, United States. The population was 25,974 at the 2000 census. The city grew drastically during the 1940s, with the formation of Hill Air Force Base, and in the 1950s with the nation-wide increase in suburb and “bedroom” community populations and has been steadily growing since then.
Clearfield is a principal city of the Ogden–Clearfield, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Davis, Morgan, and Weber counties. Clearfield gained a ward separate from the one in Syracuse, Utah on November 3, 1907. This was an outgrowth of the building of a cannery a few months before that had caused many people to move to the town.
