History of Nephi, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia (Links Added)

Unfortunately, with the general ease and availability of transportation to larger urban areas, Nephi's Main Street business district has somewhat declined, as is the case with many rural areas in Utah. Nevertheless, Nephi's population reached its largest numbers in 1980, 3,285 residents, and continued to grow throughout the decade to 3,515 in 1990. Students attend the Nephi Elementary School and the Juab Middle and High School which share a building completed in 1980. The city hosts the annual Ute Stampede Rodeo, first held in 1936. The population is predominantly LDS with members attending seven wards in two stakes.
