History of Pleasant Grove, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia (Links Added)

Since World War II, Pleasant Grove has experienced ever-increasing major subdividing of farms for house building. Today few farms remain. Sons returning from the war settled in town but worked elsewhere; the population explosion, increased work opportunities outside the community, and fast and convenient transportation all contributed to transform the town into a bedroom community with few shopping amenities. Pleasant Grove has evolved into a desirable living area, with eight parks, a new public library, numerous recreational facilities, and a low crime rate.

The 1990 population profile shows that forty percent of the residents are age fourteen and younger, and the median age is twenty-one. During the past decade, the population grew by 2,634. Its current population of 13,476 places Pleasant Grove twentieth largest among Utah cities.
