about Provo

Provo is a Utah city about 50 miles south of Salt Lake City. Provo is adjacent to Orem and Springville, Utah. Provo is the county seat of Utah County.

Settled in 1849 by 33 families from Salt Lake City, Provo has grown to a population of 105,166 (2000 census). The site was named Fort Utah by the Mormon settlers, but re-named Provo in 1850 for Étienne Provost, an early French-Canadian trapper who arrived in the region in 1825.

One of the Wasatch peaks towers over the city, facing Utah Lake. There is a large "Y" made of stones half-way up the steep mountain, built in the early part of the 20th century to commemerate Brigham Young University (original plans included construction of three letters: 'BYU'). Wild deer (and less frequently, cougars and moose) still roam the mountains. The scenery is generally considered enjoyable, and allows for hiking, skiing, fishing and other outdoor activities.

Provo is the home of Brigham Young University and the Pioneer League Minor league baseball team Provo Angels. It is also the home of Novell, Inc. Every July, Provo hosts the Stadium of Fire at BYU. The Independence Day festivites are generally quite popular among local residents, and have featured such notable figures as David Hasselhoff, Reba McEntire, and partisan right-wing idealouge Sean Hannity.

The Interstate 15 freeway links Provo with other nearby cities.
