The History of Sandy, Utah
Francis Revenue and his family settled the area in 1853 and opened a trading post on the Barlow Road (last segment of the Oregon Trail). The Revenue family traded with thousands of pioneers who traveled through on their way to Oregon and the Willamette Valley.
Silver was discovered in Little Cottonwood Canyon and soon there were hotels and saloons. A small village developed on the main road (State Street) and in 1873 had its own post office. It was eventually incorporated in 1913.
Although there are a few stories as to how Sandy got it’s name the most likely is that it was named for the nearby Sandy River which was originally identified as the “Quicksand River” by none other than Lewis and Clark. However, the name “Quicksand” gradually evolved into “Sandy”.
Weather in Sandy
The major residential region of eastern Sandy sits on the slopes of a section of the Wasatch Mountain Range and is approximately 4800 ft above sea level. The western section lies at the bottom of the valley and the Jordan River forms a major part of its western border. Both Little Cottonwood and Big Cottonwood Canyon produce rivers that flow through Sandy and eventually feed into the Jordan River. As a result Sandy, Utah has cold, wet, and icy winters as well as hot, humid summers.
