Title Manti's Historical Block 56
Description Indians and nany Shoshone captives into the area for a victory powwow. Aug. 5j 135° • • Brigham Young vi3ited the colony for the first tine. A cannon was fired from the top of Gray Hill to welcome him. He gave the valley the name of Sanpete and the town was christened "Manti." Aug. 9» 1859 . . A good road was completed from Salt Lake to Kanti through Salt Creel: Canyon. Feb. 6, 1351 . . Kanti City was incorporated, and the first City Council met in the Council House. Kanti was the fourth city in the State of Utah to be incorporated. What had recently been a settlement in a wilderness was now a thriving community. In his book, A View from the Red Point. Albert Antrei nade the following statement: "That Manti was intended by 3righam Young as an outpost beginning, a nucleus town, for the further settlement of all central and south-central 'Deseret,' there can be no doubt. He visited it often and stressed the religious significance early. Somebody in the latter-day Saint hierarchy also had a pretty vrell-^iev- eloped concept of geo3trategy, for once the outpost in Sanpete's Valley rooted, its lines of communication and its logistics with respect to the Salt Lake Valley were secured by the establishment of settlements at two strategic points-Hephi in 1851 at the nouth of Salt Creek Canyon and Koroni in 1859 at the head of the same gateway. Ilanti was intended to be the second stop on the way to California. It was the first and last settlement between Provo and Thiscon, Arizona." 25
