The Supreme Court of the United States has recognized that the Ten Commandments have undeniable historical meaning in light of the role they have played in America’s heritage. This is especially true in Pleasant Grove City. As the Ten Commandments were a set of governing principles for the nineteenth-century Mormon pioneers who endeavored to create an orderly society in Utah and in Pleasant Grove. The Ten Commandments monument was donated to Pleasant Grove in 1971 by the Fraternal Order of Eagles and was placed by the City in Pioneer Park in appreciation of its donor and because of its historical relevance as then-Mayor Jack Cook explained at the time, the monument “would serve to remind citizens of their pioneer heritage in the founded of the state.” The City thanks the Fraternal Order of Eagles for all the community service it has performed in Pleasant Grove over the past several decades.
