History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The area was first settled in 1850, and for a time was known as Union Bench. It started out as an agricultural extension of Springville. Legal action between residents of Springville and what became Mapleton, largely over water rights, allowed Mapleton to chart its own course beginning in 1901. Mapleton was finally incorporated in 1948.
