Quick History

Wikipedia has more about this subject: Pleasant View, Utah
Nestled at the base of Mount Ben Lomond in northern Weber County, for many years Pleasant View was a considered part of North Ogden. Located just west of North Ogden it has been known under several different names over years such as: the West End, the West District, Stringtown, Hot Springs, out West and finally became known as Pleasant View. [1] The pioneers found a large patch of beautiful tall straight trees that were suitable for log cabins. They called this area "Pole Patch". A stage coach station was in operation from 1860-1800 it served the Ben Holladay's Overland Lines which was purchased by Wells-Fargo. [2] Meals were served, horses fed and repairs made at this stage coach station.
The Ute Indians would make a yearly travel stop in the area, dotting the mountain side with their wickiups. The Ute tribe of Indians, led by their chieftain Tobe, used the Hot Springs for medicinal purposes. A Hot Springs resort, that included a 40 room hotel, hot spring bathing and a dance hall once received visitors in the northwestern corner of Pleasant View. [3] Settled in 1851, Pleasant View was incorporated in 1945.
