When the first train rolled into Ogden March 8, 1869, citizens of the small town had just a small glimpse into how the world around them was about to change.
When interviewed 50 years later in 1919, many adults remembered how scared they had been as children to see the massive engines and to hear the loud train whistles.
The joining of the transcontinental railroad connected the East and West and united the country in a way not seen since. Ogden became known as “Junction City” and experienced an incredible influx of people, goods and services.
The population of the city jumped from 1,464 in 1860 to 3,127 by 1870 and continued to double each decade following.
