The first pioneers began to settle there in the 1860's and became incorporated in 1893.
Way back when with the land being too dry to farm, the livelihood of the area was generated by the mining in Big Cottonwood Canyon which was in full production between the 1870's to the early 1900's. Being at the mouth of the canyon, Sandy was the perfect place for the miners to get supplies by day and carouse by night. Once the mine's dried up Sandy went back to developing the traditional, conventional rural identity that was intended.
Sandy experienced tremendous growth in the 1970's with the discovery of their newer homes, wider spaces and lower prices at the time. Sandy has its share of elaborate houses as well as the more affordable homes in consistently well cared for neighborhoods.
