Looking through some of the different posts on this site I think there needs to be some history of Sanpete County put forth. Sanpete also has its share of ghost towns. Across the Sanpitch River from Ephraim and against the Sanpitch Mountains is Manasseh, which consisted of 21 families scattered from Maple Canyon ( the Maple Canyou between Manti and Ephraim) to a point near Wales. The Hollow west of Strling is where the old town of Pettyville used to be. In 1881 the people of Pettyville moved to Sterling. Dover was founded in 1875 over the hills of Gunnison and around the point on State Road 28. If you go west of the Sevier River, you might see remnants of farms where Dover once existed. The ghost town of Clarion, located west of Gunnison, was a settlement of Jewish immigrants, founded in the fall of 1911. They tried to eke a living from the poor, rock strewn soil with very little resources, and abandoned the site in November 1915.
