Alpine has a long history in Utah County, and is one of the earliest cities settled in the county.

Alpine was originally settled in the fall of 1850, and was called several names -- the settlement along Upper Dry Creak, Lone City and Mountainville. The settlers finally decided upon Alpine as the name of the town. 

The town was officially incorporated on Jan. 19, 1855. 

Now a city, Alpine has grown significantly over the years and population estimates from 2018 put the city at more than 10,500 residents.
