The Barker Cold Springs Trout Farm near 2284 N. Fruitland Drive is shown in 1960 in the first photo. Barker's Trout Farm has grown more beautiful over the years. This is the same view (note the mountains) with larger trees and improved ponds. Fish are still caught using bamboo poles. (2 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

The buildings in the 1940s photo are the old St. Benedict's hospital at the top of 30th street. The second photo was taken today from the Bonneville Shoreline trail above WSU. The old hospital can be seen behind the condos in the photo left of center. The angle and distance are about the same. The last is an early photo of St. Ben's hospital. (3 photos) ...

Ben Lomond views from the 1940s, the first is from Ogden's east bench, and the second is taken from the Ogden Golf & Country Club. Can anyone identify the buildings at the center of the first photo? They could be what was known as the State Industrial Center, or the School for the Deaf and Blind. (2 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

Clarence and Myrtle Barker owned this ivy-covered cottage, located on the corner of 2550 N. 400 E. The home was the first in North Ogden to install electricity. The Barkers held a town party after dark, magically flipped a switch to light up the house, and the townspeople were amazed. Today the house and its peaceful, tree-laden yard have been replaced by a Walgreen's store. (2 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

Toni J CookSo sad. I always loved that house. In the 80's, it was looking pretty run-down (I think it was green) and someone restored it and the yard. It was truly lovely. I miss it and the big two story house they recently tore down SE of it. Was it a Chadwick or Woodfield home? The old two story under the pines on the SW corner of 2600 & Wash (admittedly, it was quite run down and in poor condition.) and the old Orton home on 2100 are gone now too. I MISS THEM! It seems North Ogden/contractors are tearing down all the gorgeous old homes in the name of progress. It feels like we're losing our heritage! So very sad.4   ·  2 weeks ago

Sue Gibes DamsenI went to North Ogden Elementary in the early 60's. I remember a boy named Clyde Barker who fell off the talk slide and broke his arm. ( I think we were in the second grade!) He lived south of the Sinclair station. 😊 I moved away many years ago, but North Ogden will always be special to me!4   ·  2 weeks ago

Jaymie Fillmore BarkerYes that was your dad Healy Barker Bartlett. He is looking at that scar right now. He was chasing a cute little girl, probably Sue Gibes Damsen when he broke his arm!! ❤3   ·  2 weeks ago
