Quick Facts

Located at the base of Mt. Ben Lomond, North Ogden was originally called “Ogden Hole”. [1]

In 1850, Jonathon Campbell, and his brother, Samuel, were the first to try and establish a white settlement at the Ogden Hole, but the Natives Americans ran them out. On March 4, 1851 they returned with a company of ten families and claimed it from the Natives. Eventually the conflict with the Indians ended when the settlers fed them instead of fighting with them. The earliest settlers lived in log homes and dugouts. [2]

In a meeting held on April 12, 1852 the Court appointed Jonathan Campbell as “Supervisor of the Ogden Hole.” The early town records were burned in a Utah Loan and Trust Company Fire. [3][4] Early records were preserved in a diary by the local bishop, Henry Holmes.

The town’s population was 600 when it was incorporated in February 1, 1934. The first mayor was David Gilbert Randall.

In 1900 the cemetery burned, taking with it the cemetery records and burning the headstones made of wood. There are some cemetery records that weren't in the fire and they are held at the North Ogden Historical Museum. Along with these records is the life work of the Hill Sisters that meticulously found every marked or unmarked gravesite in North Ogden. This compilation includes gravesites at farms, homes and various other places in North Ogden. A book of these gravesites along with those interred there is also held at the North Ogden Historical Museum.
