The cost of an hour-long ride on the electric streetcar was 7 cents. Young pranksters often greased the tracks to make the train slide past designated stops. They also played tunes on the signal cord, to the great annoyance of the conductor. The electric streetcar is shown in 1907 with conductor LaMoni Holmes at left. ... See MoreSee Less

His business block at 2599 N. 400 E. burned down in 1885. The store was rebuilt and housed various businesses for over 100 years. ... See MoreSee Less

Mike Morbythere was one built in Harrisville on the same creek near North Harrisville Rd. Was talking with Bruce Olsen about it. He found one of the original stones which was brought here. Different than stones in area.3   ·  3 weeks ago

Janae Ferrin MatueAfter further research the sawmill was Jacob Samuel Ferrin's (my Great grandfather), the father of Samuel Ferrin. In his history there is a paragraph about the mill, it states: Jacob helped his father and brother build one of the first sawmills at the mouth of Ogden Canyon and they furnished lumber for the first sidewalks in Ogden. they ran the mill until Johnston's Army was approaching Utah Jacob went with his father and brothers to intercept Colonel Steptoe, who was planning to attack from the east. Later they returned to Ogden and went to Echo Canyon to help build fortifications and made a stand against Johnston's Army. They remained there until almost Christmas of 1857 when they disbanded and returned to their homes.2   ·  6 days ago

North Ogden Canyon? Some have said this couldn't be the road through the bottom of the canyon. The N.O. Canyon, also known as the Lodge Pole Trail, was the only access to Ogden Valley in early times. The trail was frequented by Native Americans and trappers long before the pioneers arrived. ... See MoreSee Less

1. In 1945, Robert and Dennis Chamberlain were photographed with a metal toy airplane in North Ogden. 2. Darwin Butcher and LouJean Shaw are pictured in a goat-drawn wagon in the 1930s. Early photographers traveled door-to-door with their props (like the airplane and goat cart) to entice customers to have photos taken. ... See MoreSee Less

LaVern CottrellNo, this is Lou Jean Shaw, LuLu Shaw was a different person. This was also taken in the 1930's, LouJean's married names were Minard, Roberts and Stanger. She grew up on Fruitland Drive, she is my sister.1   ·  1 month ago

Kathy Williams MorrisWell, her name was LuLu Shaw when she was married, but at that age it would have been Hemming, and she grew up in Pocatello so I have to say no. Nice try, tho!1   ·  1 month ago
