History & History Related Items

Sandy history:

Sandy was named for the sandy soil which lies under much of the city. Some areas have sandy soil going down hundreds of feet. The sand was deposited over a long period of time as waves broke along the shore of Lake Bonneville.

The area was first settled shortly after the Mormon pioneers came into the Salt Lake Valley. President Brigham Young sent out families to settle nearby areas. Sandy was one of the first of these settlements. Permanent settlers first moved into Sandy during the 1860s and 1870s because of the availability of land in the less crowded southern end of the Salt Lake Valley. By 1871, the name was official as the railroad station in town was named the "Sandy Station." For more history, see this history page
The incorporation date of Sandy: 1893
