Town #66: MT. PLEASANT est. 1859

Mt. Pleasant is one of the small farming communities in Sanpete County. It is located north of Ephraim. It was settled by settlers from Ephraim and Manti. In the 1880s it was the biggest town in Sanpete County. A large percentage of its population at the time were foreign born so it was common to hear five different languages on its streets. What we like the best about Mt. Pleasant is that so much of its "turn of the century" business district is still intact and being used.
