Quick History

Wikipedia 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 Holladay Overland Lines which was a division of Wells-Fargo. [2] Meals were served and horses fed and repairs made at this stage coach station. 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.
