FREEDOM

Freedom (Sanpete) is a small agricultural community on U-30, four miles west northwest of Moroni and six miles south of Fountain Green. It was settled in 1871 during a particular post-Civil War period when several patriotic names developed. Many of the early immigrants had experienced oppression in the tyrannies of their home countries in Europe. The town was originally named Draper for an early Settler, but was changed to Freedom in 1877.
