Mount Pleasant Utah MapThe northernmost of Sanpete county’s “big three” cities, Mt. Pleasant is well situated near forested mountains, vast, fertile fields, and a good supply of water. While several commercial and small industrial enterprises have flourished in or near the city since the nineteenth century, agriculture and stock raising have always been the area’s economic staples. Currently, nearly half of all the farms and ranches are involved in wool growing, while thirty percent raise cattle. Dairy farming, turkeys, grain, and hay are other significant contributors to the local economy. Rambouillet sheep and shorthorn cattle were prominent at the turn of the century, while modern livestock breeds and food strains dominate today.

In the 1990s Mt. Pleasant remains a thriving, steadily growing city. New buildings exist side by side with many remaining historic structures such as the library, Liberal Hall, Sanpete County Co-op, Jensen, Rasmussen, and Seely homes, and the campus of Wasatch Academy. In addition, the commercial district has recently undergone a sensitive facelift.
