San Pete County
Formed in 1852, the county was possibly named for a Ute Indian chief named San Pitch. Its county seat is Manti and its largest city is Ephraim. White settlers first inhabited the Sanpete Valley in the late 1840s. Over the course of the 19th Century, many of the settlers came from Scandinavian countries
Sanpete is bounded along its eastern side by the Wasatch Plateau (sometimes known as the Manti Mountains). Most of the Wasatch Plateau is encompassed by the Manti Division of the Manti-La Sal National Forest. Runoff from the western slopes of these mountains provides water to the county's cities and agricultural areas. Central Sanpete is dominated by the Sanpete Valley (sometimes known as the Sanpitch or San Pitch Valley), where most of the county's cities are located. The western side of the valley is bounded by the lower and drier Sanpitch Mountains, which also form part of the western boundary of the county. The Sanpitch River, runs from north to south through Sanpete and empties into the Sevier River in southwestern Sanpete. This portion of the
Sevier River Valley is known as Gunnison Valley.
