Mt. Pleasant

The railroad came to Mt. Pleasant in 1890 and along with it came prosperity. Commercial structures along Main Street reflect those good times.  Most of the buildings have been preserved to reflect that era. The town is home to Wasatch Academy, a private school founded in 1875 that still attracts students from around the world. Mt. Pleasant even boasts its own winery, which offers wine and cheese tasting every Saturday. The town is a short drive from both the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache and Manti-LaSal National Forests.
