Ephraim Utah MapSince the 1850s, Sanpete County’s history has revolved around the rivalry of its four leading towns–Mt. Pleasant, Gunnison, Manti, and Ephraim. Ephraim, long portrayed as the epitome of “the Utah farm village,” refused to concede primacy of place to its nearest competitor, even though Manti captured both the county seat and one of Utah’s first four Mormon temples. In the 1950s, Ephraim finally eclipsed all its rivals in size and two decades later passed the Census Bureau’s magic 2,500 mark to become Sanpete’s only urban place.
