History

Ogden High School.jpg
Ogden is the county seat of Weber County. Ogden has a history of Mountain Men Rendezvous,[1] Mormon settlers and the arrival of the railroad along with it’s array of colorful characters. It’s first non Native American inhabitants were traders/trappers that lived in the mountains east of Ogden with their Native American wifes trapping and trading. Peter Skene Ogden led a group of trappers to what is now Ogden Valley in 1825.

Mountain men Jedediah S. Smith, Peter Skene Ogden, Etienne Provost, and Jim Bridger, camped in the Ogden area. Fort Buenaventura is an area that was claimed in 1843 by horse trader/trapper Miles Goodyear. Miles built the fort and trading post on the banks of the Weber River just west of what is now Ogden City. [2] Fort Buenaventura merged from it’s Mountain man culture to eventually that of a Mormon Agricultural Community settled by James Brown and later, Lorin Farr. [3] Miles sold his claim to James Brown in 1847. The name was changed to Brownsville then in January of 1850 the name Ogden first came into use.[4]

With the completion of the transcontinental railroad, Ogden became the "Cross Roads of the West" or "Junction City" and welcomed a variety of visitors for several decades to come. Ogden became the hub of railroad activity between the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific Railroads. From the 1870s to World War II, Ogden was a major railroad town, busy with 9 different Railroad Companies. [5]

During the great depression in 1937, the "New Deal" created 13 WPA and PWA projects giving residents an opportunity to work and the community some of the most amazing art deco style buildings.
