The Children of Mountainville

Before its name was changed to Alpine, the community surrounded by Alp-like peaks in Utah County, Utah was called Mountainville.

Local sculptor and artist, Dennis Smith, remembers the children who populated that frontier settlement in a casting dedicated to them on the top of the Alpine Cemetery among the graves of many pioneer children and early settlers.
