It lies between the cities of Orem to the north and Springville to the south. It is the home of Brigham Young University, operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints . The LDS Church's largest Missionary Training Center is located in Provo. Provo was originally called Fort Utah when it was settled in 1849 by 33 Mormon families from Salt Lake City, but was re-named Provo in 1850 for Étienne Provost, an early French-Canadian trapper who arrived in the region in 1825. Provo has grown to a population of 115,135 —making it the third-largest city in Utah, only about 2,000 people smaller than West Valley City.
