About Pleasant Grove, Utah
Pleasant Grove is a thoroughly modern city, part of the Provo-Orem Metropolitan Statistical Area, with a fascinating past.
The area now known as Pleasant Grove was originally settled by Mormon pioneers, sent by Brigham Young himself, in July of 1850. The pioneers established a small community in what is now the southwest corner of the city and were soon joined by many other notable Mormon residents. The town grew in size, and by the time of its incorporation in 1855 – just five years after it was first settled – it had become home to 623 people.
However, the settlement was not originally known as “Pleasant Grove”, but as“Battle Creek”. It was named for an 1849 battle between the Mormon settlers and the Ute Indians, who Brigham Young believed had stolen his horses; a memorial plaque still stands on the site of the battle. However, the name “Battle Creek” was soon replaced, with “Pleasant Grove” chosen due to the plethora of cottonwood trees in the area. These trees also play their part in the modern-day Pleasant Grove, and have led to the town being nicknamed Utah’s “City of Trees”.
Modern Pleasant Grove is a well-populated area, with a total of 33,509 residents recorded as living in the city at the time of the 2010 census – notably, 41% of the total residents were between the ages of 18 and 24, making Pleasant Grove a youthful city when compared to the surrounding areas.
As well as the memorial plaque for the once-eponymous battle, Pleasant Grove is now arguably best known as the home of the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center. The Center, which is named for educator and astronaut Christa McAuliffe, is popular with visitors thanks to its flight simulators, which mix Star Trek themes with factual astronomy information to provide an enthralling experience for all visiting children.
