North Ogden
Historical Museum

North Ogden was settled in 1851. Pioneers Jonathan Campbell Jr. and John Riddle were the earliest settlers. The Native Americans were reluctantly forced to share the land with the incoming pioneers. They called the area "Opecarry", which meant "stick in the head".!? Ben Lomond Peak is shown in 1927, with a similar view in September of 2014. (2 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

When the first settlers arrived in North Ogden around 1850, they planted fruit trees from seed brought across the plains, which developed into large orchards. The Ben Lomond Orchard Company (277 E. Lomond View Drive) was one of the fruit packing houses. As many as 75 train carloads were shipped out during peak season. During off-season, this packing house was used as a skating rink.

Old-time vacations: (1) Yellowstone has been a favorite vacation spot for many years. Shown in 1933 at Mammoth Hot Springs are Wilford & Lucille Shaw and Beatrice & Ralph Garner from North Ogden. (2) Four friends pose for a photo while on a vacation in 1936. Jack Deamer, Bill Bailey, Verle Barker, & Lowell Shupe traveled from N.O. to see the Hollywood stars with only $17 among them. They used most of the money for car repairs, and then had to drive to a relative's home in California to borrow money to get back home. They had this photo taken in a staged setting. (2 photos) ...
