Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Weber, Morgan, Davis, and Box Elder counties. The 2010 Census

Ogden in 1874.

Originally named Fort Buenaventura, the city of Ogden was the first permanent settlement by people of European descent in the region that is now Utah. It was established by the trapper Miles Goodyear
Miles Goodyear
in 1846 about a mile west of where downtown Ogden is currently located. In November 1847 all of the land now comprising Weber County together with some livestock and Fort Buenaventura
Fort Buenaventura
was purchased by Captain James Brown for $3,000. The land was conveyed to Captain Brown in a Mexican Land Grant, this area being at that time a part of Mexico.[citation needed] The settlement was then called Brownsville, after Captain James Brown, but was later named Ogden for a brigade leader of the Hudson's Bay Company, Peter Skene Ogden, who had trapped in the Weber Valley a generation earlier. There is some confusion in which "Ogden" was the first to set foot in the Utah
city. A Samuel Ogden traveled though the western United States
United States
on an exploration trip in 1818. The site of the original Fort Buenaventura
Fort Buenaventura
is now a Weber County park.

Ogden is the closest sizable city to the Golden Spike
Golden Spike
location at Promontory Summit, Utah, where the First Transcontinental Railroad
First Transcontinental Railroad
was joined in 1869. Ogden was known as a major passenger railroad junction owing to its location along major east–west and north–south routes, prompting the local chamber of commerce to adopt the motto, "You can't get anywhere without coming to Ogden."[9] Railroad passengers traveling west to San Francisco from the eastern United States typically passed through Ogden (and not through the larger Salt Lake City
to the south). Ogden, however, is no longer served by Amtrak, the national passenger rail system, and passengers desiring to travel from Ogden by rail must travel via FrontRunner
commuter rail to Salt Lake City
and Provo. In 1972, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
completed construction of and dedicated the Ogden Utah
Temple in Ogden. The temple was built to serve the large LDS population in the area. In 2010, the LDS Church announced a major renovation of the Ogden Temple and the adjacent Tabernacle. The work, which began in 2011, includes completely changing the dated 1970's exterior, removing the steeple from the Tabernacle so as to make the Temple's steeple a main focus, as well as a new underground parking garage and gardens.[10] The Temple was rededicated in 2014.[11] Because Ogden has historically been the second largest city in Utah, it is home to a large number of historic buildings. However, by the 1980s, several Salt Lake City
suburbs and Provo had surpassed Ogden in population. The Defense Depot Ogden Utah
operated in Ogden from 1941 to 1997. Some of its 1,128 acres (456 ha) has since been converted into a commercial and industrial park called the Business Depot Ogden. Geography[edit] Ogden is located at 41°13′11″N 111°58′16″W / 41.2196°N 111.9712°W / 41.2196; -111.9712 (41.2196, −111.9712),[12] at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains. According to the United States
United States
Bureau, the city has a total area of 26.6 square miles (69.0 km2), all land. Elevations in the city range from about 4,300 to 5,200 feet (1,300 to 1,600 m) above sea level.

The Ogden and Weber Rivers, which originate in the mountains to the east, flow through the city and meet at a confluence just west of the city limits. Pineview Dam
Pineview Dam
is located in the Ogden River Canyon 7 miles (11 km) east of Ogden. The reservoir behind the dam provides over 110,000 acre feet (140,000,000 m3) of water storage and water recreation for the area. Prominent mountain peaks near Ogden include Mount Ogden
Mount Ogden
to the east and Ben Lomond to the north. Climate[edit] Ogden experiences a dry summer continental climate (Köppen climate classification Dsa).

Ogden City
Municipal Building

Ogden is governed under the mayor-council form of government, in which the full-time mayor serves as executive while the seven-member part-time council serves as the legislative branch. All of these elected officials serve four-year terms, with elections occurring in odd-numbered years and terms beginning in January of even-numbered years. The current mayor is Mike Caldwell, who took office in January 2012. The current city council members are Marcia White, Richard Hyer, Bart Blair, Ben Nadolski, Luis Lopez, Neil Garner, and Doug Stephens. Four of the council members represent the city's four municipal wards, while the other three (Lopez, White, and Blair) are elected at-large by voters from the entire city. The Ogden City
government operates on a budget of $190 million per year and employs nearly 600 full-time workers.[17] In addition to providing the usual municipal services, the government actively engages in promoting business and economic development. The city operates a redevelopment agency (RDA), with the city council acting as the RDA governing board and the mayor as its executive director. The RDA's activity has steadily increased since its establishment in 1969, with tax increment revenues currently at about $10 million per year and an outstanding debt of over $50 million. Nearly all of Ogden's central business district is now covered by designated redevelopment districts, as are Business Depot Ogden and several other industrial areas in the western parts of the city. Much of the recent political discourse in Ogden has focused on controversial government-sponsored development projects in the downtown area, including the Ogden Eccles Conference Center, Lindquist Field, The Junction, the Ogden River Project,[18] and other proposals that have not moved forward.[19][20] A proposed streetcar connecting downtown to Weber State University
Weber State University
has attracted considerable attention but only limited support.[21] A major controversy flared up in 2005–07 when the mayor and many others pushed unsuccessfully for construction of a luxury residential development on public land in Ogden's foothills and a new ski resort in the mountains above the city, to be accessed by a pair of aerial gondolas.[22] Other local political concerns include Ogden’s relatively high tax[23] and utility[24] rates, efforts to fight crime,[25] allegations of government corruption,[26][27] and challenges facing the Ogden City schools.[28][29]

Sports and recreation[edit] The mountains and rivers near Ogden offer diverse opportunities for outdoor recreation. An extensive trail system, immediately adjacent to the city's eastern edge, gives residents and visitors immediate access to the foothills of the Wasatch Range. The foothill trails are used for hiking, running, mountain biking, and sometimes snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Steeper trails climb eastward into the mountains, and many other mountain trails originate within a few miles of the city. A system of paved urban trails runs along the banks of the Ogden and Weber Rivers.[38] The quartzite cliffs above Ogden's foothills provide a variety of rock climbing routes. An extensive boulder field in the foothills is one of the most popular bouldering sites in the state.

Lindquist Field, home of the Raptors

On the mountains east of Ogden are three downhill ski areas: Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and Wolf Mountain. Popular sites for cross-country skiing include Snowbasin
