Whether you call Provo home or not, chances are you recognize the city's iconic spots. 

From downtown, to BYU, East Bay, the Utah State Hospital, Y Mountain and Utah Lake, the city has been home to some unique buildings, locations and homes. 

Provo was first settled in 1849 and was incorporated as a city on April 1, 1850. The oldest city in Utah County has since grown to be home to more than 117,000 people — the third largest city in Utah.
