The Shupe ranch was home to Parley and Luella (Chadwick) Shupe and their children (14 total, one died at birth.) Most of the family contracted the Spanish Flu virus in 1918, but they finally recovered. They also recovered from Smallpox in 1921. The health department marked the door of their home with a red quarantine sign during their illnesses. See MoreSee Less

I used to deliver newspapers here, to the Shupes. Good memories. Beautiful farm.

This home was such a gem! The landscaping was perfect! I can’t believe what’s been done to the home and land. It makes me so sad.

In 1870 William and Sarah (Ward) Spackman constructed a one-room home made from rock at 548 E. 2650 N. (rear). The rocks used in the construction were remnants of the fort wall, which was erected in the 1850s (about 8 blocks square) for protection from the Shoshone Indians. The photo from 2007 shows the fort wall rocks falling from the home during demolition to make way for North Ogden Elementary school. Some of the rocks were used to make the sign in front of the museum. See MoreSee Less

Julie Barker Farr. Your people!!! They are so adorable. I love these old photos!

This is my Grandpa Barker and his home at 1225 N Washington blvd still stands. And is where my parents had lived and my mom's still there. Dad always said we were the turkey Barker's, lol. Grandpa later married my grandma Elizabeth.
