Sanpete County is regarded by many as the Heart of Utah-not just because of its central geographical location in the state but also because of its treasure trove of historic buildings and its role in fostering the settlement of nearby valleys.MoreSanpete County is regarded by many as the Heart of Utah-not just because of its central geographical location in the state but also because of its treasure trove of historic buildings and its role in fostering the settlement of nearby valleys.

Mormon pioneers arrived in Sanpete Valley in late 1849 to share the area with the San Pitch Utes. Difficulties arose, leading to two major confrontations-the Walker War in the 1850s and the Black Hawk War in the 1860s. The areas Native Americans eventually were relocated to the Uintah Indian Reservation.Among the early Mormon arrivals were a large number of Scandinavian converts, bringing a heritage still important in the county.

Protestant missionaries came in the 1870s and established churches and schools, including Wasatch Academy at Mount Pleasant. Snow College in Ephraim began as a LDS institution before becoming a state-operated college. The crown jewel of Sanpete Countys architectural heritage is the Manti LDS Temple, completed in 1888.

Its grounds are the stage for the Mormon Miracle Pageant, which attracts thousands of visitors each summer. First known for its grain products, then for its sheep, today turkeys are the staple of Sanpetes agricultural economy.
