1916 · No-Ni-Shee Arch

The No-Ni-Shee Arch was a temporary archway near the intersection of Main Street and South Temple in downtown Salt Lake City. The archway was built in 1916 for the Wizard of the Wasatch festival. The name No-Ni-Shee was derived from a mythical American Indian Salt Princess. Her tears caused the Great Salt Lake to be salty. The arch was dedicated to her and sprayed with salt water so that salt eventually crystallized on Main Street. The Wizard’s carnivals enlivened Utah’s summers for several years. The last Wizard of the Wasatch carnival was held in 1916, on the eve of World War I.

Name Meaning

English (Kent and Sussex): perhaps from Middle English carde ‘card’, an implement for teasing wool for spinning (from medieval Latin cardus) and therefore short for Carder or a metonymic occupational name for a maker of wool carders. Alternatively, from Middle English carde ‘playing card’ (Old French carte), also ‘kind of fabric’ (medieval Latin carda), which could have been a nickname given to a card player or a metonymic occupational name for maker and seller of the fabric.

Irish: shortened form of McCard .

French: from a shortened form of the personal name Ricardon, a pet form of Richard .
