Historic Map - Ogden City, UT - 1890

View of Ogden City, Weber County, U.T., 1890 / drawn & published by American Publishing Co.

This panoramic perspective print of Ogden City, Utah was drawn and published by W. W. Browning & Co., American Publishing Co. in 1890. In the 1850's, Mormons created Ogden City at the confluence of two rivers where a pioneer fort once stood. When Weber County was organized, Ogden was named the county seat of government. Ogden remained an agricultural community until the late 1860's when several railroad lines began establishing termini there. From that point, Ogden became an important center for railroads such as the Union Pacific Railroad and the Central Pacific Railroad. In 1889, Ogden elected their first non-Mormon mayor. They also founded Weber Stake Academy, which later became Weber State University. By 1890 Ogden was eager to welcome new manufacturing and commerce, staging an open-house festival to promote the town.

The map includes labeled streets, buildings and railroad routes. The Wasatch Mountain Range is shown in the distance.
