<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Sanpete, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Ephraim.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Ephraim - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
