Clair is the Sandy Community Coordinator for the Granite Community (Community # 30). Granite is rich in history and has varied in size over the years and is now partially identified by Historic Granite markers and street signs.
The history of Granite began about 1859 when the granite rock quarry was opened at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. The work of removing granite rock for the construction of the Salt Lake Temple continued until 1890.
In 1868 the Little Cottonwood Mining District was organized at Alta and extensive mining and smelting began. The “Emma Mine” was created over one of the nation’s largest silver veins. Thus began the mining era and Granite was founded in 1870.
Today, the Sandy Granite Community contains 896 homes with a population of 2320, and is still a friendly hometown striving to maintain its historical roots.
