They caught several coyote pups here, and named the place Coyote. The first permanent settlement was established, with the name of Coyote, in 1878. In 1880, deposits of the antimony ore stibnite were found in Coyote Canyon, and a mining industry began. This resulted in the town's renaming, in 1921, to Antimony.FireworksAntimony is known throughout Central Utah for its 4th of July fireworks display which consists of three bottle rockets and free sparklers for anyone over the age of 3. Under the direction of visionary Mayor Shannon Allen, the town moved its annual fireworks display from the town park to the bluffs overlooking Otter Creek Reservoir. This allowed the town to take advantage of a unique water venue for the fireworks. The fireworks are shot over the lake, reflecting off the water. The fireworks have become so popular that hundreds of residents of nearby towns forgo their own towns' fireworks displays to see Antimony's display.Antimony is in Utah (UT).
