Antimony is a small town in central Utah. A group of pioneers were sent to settle there and make peace with the local Fish Lake band of Indians. Apparently they were successful.
In the beginning someone caught several coyote pups in the area and in 1878, the settlement became known as Coyote. Then in 1880 an ore body of antimony was found in nearby Coyote Canyon and a mining industry sprang up. In 1921 the town's name was officially changed to Antimony.
Antimony has become locally famous in recent years for its Fourth of July fireworks display.
