Fountain Green is in Central Utah. It was a popular campground for Salt Creek and San Pitch travelers during the 1850’s before the Johnson’s and other families from Santaquin in Utah Valley settle it. Lying just below the Divide and Mt. Nebo, it had a green fountain second to no other spring in Sanpete. Any tour of Fountain Green ought to include a stop at the Unitah Springs (Big Springs) which gush out of the mountains two miles north west of town to form Silver Creek—-the source of the town’s greenness.
