"...the town Mendon epitomized the landscape of the village type in significant ways. Like a page from the past, it was situated on the west side of Cache Valley snug against the Wellsville Mountains. In company with other pioneer Mormon settlements, it was located to take advantage of water, arable land,climatic attributes, and to some degree, with an eye to Indian relations and accessibility to other communities." -- From Charles S. Peterson's "Introduction" to the book History of Mendon: a Pioneer Chronicle of a Mormon Settlement by Isaac Sorenson
