Mapleton is home to more than 9,700 people, but it hasn’t always been. 

The city was originally incorporated as a town on Sept. 3, 1901, and as a city on April 1, 1948. The area has grown significantly since that time from its roots as a small farming community known as the "Union Bench" to the city it is today.
