Synopsis: North Ogden is a quiet community nestled in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains. The majestic Ben Lomond Peak silently towers over the city to the north with Lewis Peak standing guard to the east. Beautiful panoramic scenery is enjoyed in all direction. During the early 19th century, the city and surrounding areas were inhabited by the Spanish and Native Americans and explored by trappers. North Ogden City was established in 1851, and the challenges facing the pioneer families were numerous. Settlers encountered hostile Native Americans, hungry wild animals, devastating grasshopper invasions, and extreme weather conditions, and the food supplies were often depleted. Regardless, the citys population thrived, and farms, orchards, and businesses prospered. The perseverance of those early settlers is linked to the rich heritage treasured by the citizens of today. The members of the North Ogden Historical Museum have selected photographs dating back to the first century of the citys existence, offering a glimpse into the past. The images are drawn from the museums archives and from the generous citizens of the community, many of whom are descendents of the original settlers. The North Ogden Historical Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of the city. The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all. Book jacket.
