    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 (Cheshire): habitational name from Oakenbottom in Bolton le Moors (Lancashire), probably originally called ǣcen-botme ‘oaken valley’. During the Middle Ages this name became successively Eakenbottom and Ickenbottom, with the first element becoming associated with the Lancashire and Cheshire dialect word hicken or higgen ‘mountain ash’ or the personal name Higgin.
