Alpine Real Estate
Alpine Real Estate History
Alpine was settled in 1850 by a group of Mormon pioneers who were sent to Utah County to tend raise livestock in the area. Alpine was named because it reminded the Latter-Day Saint Prophet Brigham Young of the Swiss Alps. Alpine remained largely rural for nearly a century but then experienced rapid growth in the late 1900s, especially in the 90s. It is located on the slopes of the Wasatch Range with impeccable views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
With the completion of Traverse Ridge Road, which connects Salt Lake County and Utah County, and the near complete expansion of SR 92, connecting Alpine to I15, Alpine has become tremendously more accessible to those working outside the city’s borders. With the completion of these thoroughfares the beauty and spectacular views of Alpine are now more accessible than ever to Utah home buyers.
