Mea Culpa Correction

Mount Pleasant, Utah is a beautiful, vibrant community.


Historic Downtown Main Street – Mount Pleasant, Utah

We’d like to apologize to the town of Mount Pleasant, Utah for a mistake we made in our June issue.

In our article – Why Randy Made His Farm a “Hobby” we described Mount Pleasant “as charmingly post-apocalyptic,” with abandoned homes and farms. We were actually driving through Thistle, Utah a ghost town left behind when the service they provided for railroad cars was no longer in demand.

We’ve since learned, from Monte Bona on the Mount Pleasant city council, that not only is the city not abandoned it is home to a beautiful, historic main street featuring well preserved 19th century buildings. It is also home to Wasatch Academy, housed in a building listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We offer our sincere apologies for any misunderstanding.
