My grandparents home & childhood hangout. I have many dreams of opening the kitchen door & walking in—my grandmother toasted bread on a long fork over hot coals in a wood-burning kitchen stove. There was a washroom near that entry where I saw my Grandfather shave, uncle Grant when he visited & later it’s where a Connie would fix her hair. Great for those who walked by on the way to school or to Ken’s Market but for me it was a second home full of the palpable memories & a great deal of love.

Oh my heck! I remember this home!

That is Hattie, Heber, Lane, Gene and Grant Huband in the picture. Love the house and the memories of these wonderful people.

Saw it everyday on way to school. Gorgeous house love it

Liked the early home more......

I love the old look of this home !! It’s sad they changed it

I remember they had a great patch of bright purple sweet peas at the front of their yard. I loved them!

I remember that house. Seen it everyday also. Great memory.

I loved that house! Visited there a few times. We walked by it every day on the way to school.

Walked by it on the way to school or to the pool!

Too bad. That is a nice looking house.

This place looks familiar

I really like the brick version. That looks like it could be there forever. Sad that it was demolished.

I seem to remember hearing that the wide front window was added because the lady of the house was in a wheelchair or bedridden, and the window made it possible for her to look out at the neighborhood. Is that right?

So, wth? Not there anymore..I'm assuming.

Labeled: "North Ogden Children-1922," this photo came from Florence (Barker) Manning's files, so they may be Barker children. Can anyone identify them? ... See MoreSee Less

Like Julie said, I don't think any of Clarence and Myrtle Barker's kids had blonde hair. But I love everything about this photo.

Jeff Flinders I know Great Grandma was a manning and from Hooper but could it be cousins?

Sorry. I don't know. I probably found photo and gave it to museum but with no identification.

What a wonderful photo!!

That's Manny, moe and jack

Love the pic.

Great picture

My dad ran around with One of the barkers Jimmie but dad was born in 22. Jimmie died in World War II



Carol Manning Hutcheson. Gloria Manning-Smee. Can you guys identify who these children are?

Gaylene Draper Croxford do you think this is a picture of your Mom????

Your people, Julie Barker Farr?

Silkworm farming (sericulture) was assigned to the LDS Relief Society beginning in 1855. The worm eggs were kept warm before hatching by being carried in a pouch around the necks of the women. The cocoons were grown and harvested in the attic of the Sidney Stevens home in North Ogden. Silkworms were fed mulberry leaves three times a day. The Stevens home was constructed in 1874 at 2593 N. 400 E., later owned by the Clarence Barker family, and demolished in 2009. 🙁 (Demolition photos courtesy of Paul Stephens) ... See MoreSee Less

I always loved that house, it was a beautiful landmark.

Very interesting. Its a shame that this historic house could not have been preserved.

I remember this home it was a relic wish we Americans left places up like Germany does

Did the adventure prosper? Was there a market for the silk?

My friend used to live there. It was so cool on the inside!! Rhonda Lynn Catherine Gero-Owens your wife used to live here!!

Wonder if I could keep them around my neck.

I always wondered what that house used to look like! It was such a beauty.

Such a memory

Interesting tibit of history. Sad to see the home gone.....

amazing story

My friend who grew up in that house said that in the winter, she had to stuff clothes in the upstairs corner bedroom to keep the snow out. Lindsay Farr Harper

Louis (Bud) and Temp Abernathy crossed the U.S. by horseback in 1911, at the ages of 7 and 9. They stopped on their journey to have their horses shod by North Ogden's Shupe Brothers. ... See MoreSee Less

Tough little kids! I would love to find out what the rest of their life story was like as they grew up and got older!

Wonderful story! Thanks for sharing Holly.

I wonder who would be tough enough to tackle something like this nowadays. Not me! Pretty amazing.


And nowadays kids can't walk to school


Love this story

Ruth Summers, is this one of our Shupe relatives?

The Alvord farm and homestead, located near 200 E. 2550 N. was home to early North Ogden settlers, Gideon W. Alvord (1841-1918) and Sarah (Shupe) Alvord (1845-1907). They were the parents of 11 children, but 3 of them died of diphtheria within one week. ... See MoreSee Less

I love the early homesteads and the history with them

Suzi Woodland

Love these old photos.

Hope Scott and Jackie Alvord see this. My father, Norman J Shaw and his family lived down the lane. Whenever we stayed at Grandpa Albert and Rosene Shaw’s farm the Alvord place was as far as we could ever venture out to.

I used to go visiting teaching to Rosene Shaw. Great family. Wasn't there another brother married to Diane?

Love that home.

What a wonderful picture

I love seeing these old pictures,

Marianne your farm house
