North Salt Lake was settled by a group of travelers who were enticed by the lush natural springs running from the mountain to the valley. They found the area to be rich in natural resources needed for beautiful building. A small post office opened in 1918 to serve the newly settled area, and commonly used the reference “North Salt Lake” to describe its location, a title that became the official name of the city in 1946.
The city celebrates annual events such as the Eaglewood Festival of Speed, a display of beloved vehicles on the Eaglewood golf course, and Independence Day, celebrated on July 3rd with fireworks, food, and festivities. Involvement opportunities such as youth city council, senior lunches, and children’s activities encourage the entire family to take pride in their city. There is never a dull moment in North Salt Lake.
