Welcome to Joy ...

So far, we have found very little information about Joy. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Joy to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Joy, please Contact Us.


Joy would have been located within present day Juab County<2>.

We aren't confident of the location of Joy, so consider the above location as an estimate.<3>

While the community is gone, the present day location for Joy is 5,910 feet [1,801 m] above sea level.<4> In other words, the elevation of Joy is about 1¼ mile [or ~1¾ km] above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where Joy was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you travel west from Joy, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).

If Joy still existed, it would have been in the (435) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Joy, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Juab, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Joy - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Joy) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Joy. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Joy

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Joy. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.5721, Longitude: -113.0615       In this case, the coordinates for Joy have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
