History & History Related Items

This is a history page for Mount Pleasant. Also try this history page. It was here that the peace treaty by Chief Blackhawk was signed in the now Old Pioneer Museum. The Main Street is on the National Historic Register.

A group of settlers from Manti, led by Madison D. Hambleton, came here in the Spring of 1852 to begin the community of Hambleton. A small group had come late in 1851 to find lumber and wood for their project. During the Walkara Indian War, the little group had to re-locate temporarily to Spring Town, which later became Spring City, and eventually moved back to Manti for protection. In 1859, a larger group was sent to colonize the area. When they arrived, they found the old settlement had been burned to the ground. They laid out a new townsite at that time.

Many of the new settlers were Mormon converts from Europe and Scandinavia. By 1880, Mount Pleasant was the largest city in Sanpete County, with a majority of the adults being foreign born. Because of this ethnic diversity, special cultures were formed in the small community. For a long period of time, five languages were spoken here. It took years for the melding to occur with moments of confusion and sometimes funny communication problems.
