Chesterfield is a small neighborhood of 4,100 tucked away in West Valley City, 10 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. Chesterfield's rural charm lies in its largely agricultural zoning, many residents own horses, goats, or sheep. There are two animal sanctuaries, one for abused horses and one for birds.
Chesterfield has a mixed history of Latino immigrants, Mormon pioneers, farmers and criminals. In the last 15 years, the addition of a school and five religious institutions have helped make Chesterfield more of a safe farm community.
