Quick History


For many years Pleasant View was a considered part of just west of North Ogden. Known as 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 seved the HOlloday Overland Lines which was a division of Wells-Fargo. Approximately one and a quarter mile west from this site John and Sarah Ann Mower operated a stage coach station. During 1860-1880 it served the Holladay Overland Lines which were under the management of Wells-Fargo Company. The line ran 950 miles to The Dalles, Oregon, and branched off 400 miles farther to Virginia City, Montana. Coaches traveled the line three times each week. Mower changed the horses and made repairs to harness and coach. Mrs. Mower served meals to the passengers.

Nestled at the base of Mount Ben Lomond in northern Weber County, the City is best known for its beautiful valley views and highly desirable residential areas.
