Sand Springs is over 100 years old, founded at the turn of the 20th century by sheep, cattle, and horse ranchers. It has a population of about 90 people. It gets its name from the wide expanse of sandy soil and life-giving springs in the area. Most people currently make a living as ranchers and farmers. The farmable acres in this area are some of the richest, most productive soils in the county; however much of the land is suitable only for grazing due to the terrain. There is a family-owned reservoir that is open to the public for fishing.
