Sanpete County was created on 3 March 1852.[5] The origin of the Sanpete County name came from a mispronunciation of a local Indian tribe, the San Pitch.[6]Nestled at the base of the mountains, the communities of San Pete county were set up primarily as agricultural communities.The early pioneers set up farms with the use of canals and wells. A vanguard group of 224 men, women, and children settlers were first sent to the area from the Salt Lake Valley in 1849. [7]Although the first Scandinavian settlers, consisting of mostly Danish immigrants, may have reached the Sanpete Valley as early as 1852, the main influx didn’t begin until 1853 and 1854. Upon arriving, the first group of Scandinavians joined other settlers in present-day Ephraim. [8]The area population peaked from about 1900 to 1910, and then declined until the 1970s.
