History

Mapleton was likely named by Julia Ann Bean ("Grandma" Bean) for the abundance of Bigleaf Maple trees in the area.[3] Grandma Bean's husband was Obediah Roberts Bean, and their eldest child was judge Robert S. Bean.[3] Pioneers of 1852, the Beans moved to the Mapleton area in 1886 and the town was named shortly thereafter.[3] There was a post office called Seaton established north of the locality in 1885, and when it moved to the Mapleton area in 1889, Mrs. Bean became postmaster.[3] The post office was renamed Mapleton to match the town in 1896.[3]
