Sandy, UT 84070
Not many people know that the Sandy Museum even exists, or even much about the history of Sandy, Utah. The Sandy Museum is located on historic Center Street in Sandy, and close to historic Main Street. The building the museum is in has served many purposes over the years: In 1890, it was a co-op mercantile store and social hall; in 1912 it housed the Knights of Pythias; at one time it was Jenkins Funeral Parlor; 1939 it was a fire station; October 1987 it opened up as the Historic Sandy Museum. The tour guides are very knowledgeable about the building and everything in it. They are very good to answer your questions, tell about the personal items donated to the museum, and the history of Sandy. In an engaging way, they peek your interest to want to learn and hear more.

In the gift shop, they have an excellent little booklet called "Walking Tour Of Historic Sandy". It has priceless pictures of historic Sandy, and many of the people that called Sandy home. I am excited for Summer, as we will definitely be taking a second trip to the museum, and to do the walking tour of Sandy. Stay tuned for details, as I will definitely post them here! We would love for many of you to come with us!
Thanks again to our tour guides for teaching us about the history of Sandy, the history of the building, and many great stories behind the historic collection they have at the museum!!
