The City of Sandy in Clackamas County serves as a gateway to Mt. Hood. Sandy is surrounded by an expanse of scenic rivers and wilderness areas, offering a wide variety of recreational opportunity. Though Sandy’s heritage was logging and saw milling, today’s economic activity comes from agricultural, tourism, light-industrial manufacturing and service businesses.
Sandy was named for the nearby Sandy River which was originally identified as the “Quicksand River” by Lewis and Clark; however, the name “Quicksand” gradually evolved into “Sandy”.
Although there are several opportunities to work in the surrounding community, many Sandy residents commute to jobs in nearby Portland. Agricultural crops in the surrounding area are primarily nursery stock and a variety of berries. Sandy is proud to have an active arts scene and is home to the Sandy Actors Theatre and the Wy’est Artisan Guild. Local artists display their work throughout town but notably at the Chamber, the library and the Theatre.
In 1845, Samuel K. Barlow, a pioneer emigrant from Kentucky, blazed a road (known as The Barlow Road) from The Dalles, Oregon around the south side of Mt. Hood to Eagle Creek, (a settlement just east of Oregon City), thus completing the last leg of the famous Oregon Trail that began in Independence, Missouri. Sandy’s first Post Office was established in 1873 and the village became an incorporated city in 1911. Sandy’s first settlers, the Francis Revenue family, arrived in 1853 and soon opened a trading post here on the Barlow Road and served many of the thousands of pioneers who traveled through on their way to the Willamette Valley. –Sandy Historical Society
