Manti history:

Leaving Salt Lake City in late October 1849, 224 people, including children, arrived in what would become Manti by late November. This was to be the first settlement south of Provo at special invitation from the Ute Chief. He invited Brigham Young to sent a colony to live alongside his own encampments and those of Chief Sanpeetch. The meaning of the words, Sanpeetch, are unknown, but may have something to do with red earth. The river in this area is still called Sanpitch, but the name of both the county and the valley has evolved to Sanpete.

The townsite was named Manti in the summer of 1850 by Brigham Young. It was suggested by the patriarch, Isaac Morley. The name is from Alma in the Book of Mormon. Manti was incorporated in February of 1851. The first mayor was Dan Jones, a Welsh native. Many Danish converts came to Manti in 1853.

The Mormon Temple at Manti, which was begun in 1877 and dedicated in 1888, is a feature of the city. Another historical building is the Patten House (1854), built by John Patten of pioneer rubble rock.
