Cottonwood Heights which is located in Salt Lake County, is dominated by a high ridge separating the valleys of the Big and Little Cottonwood Creeks. Thus, acquiring it’s nickname of “City between the canyons”. Even after ten years, Cottonwood Heights is still Utah’s newest city. The original settlement here was called Butlerville, named after one of the prominent families who settled the area.
Covered in suburban housing but with most commercial development, the ridge has been restricted to the lower-lying areas north of the ridge
