Gandy is a small farming community in Millard County, Utah, located just east of the Nevada border. It is located in the west-central part of Snake Valley. It is known for Gandy Warm Springs and Gandy Creek, a large spring (15-19 cfs)[3] that comes out of the base of Spring Mountain to the west. It stays around 81–82 degrees Fahrenheit (27–28 Celsius) year-round.[4][5] Originally known as Smithville, Gandy was renamed in 1925 after Isaac Gandy, the first ranch owner in the area back when this was a post office stop along the Pony Express/Overland Route.[6]
