The city of Ogden, Utah was incorporated in 1851 and ever since the city has grown from its railroad roots to a bustling city with a rejuvenated downtown.

After the success of our slide show gallery of old photos of Salt Lake City, we decided to do the same for Ogden.

A major railroad town, Ogden was the nearest major city to where the Golden Spike was laid at Promontory Point, completing the Transcontinental Railroad.

We've collected photos from a 100 year stretch of history: From 1860 when Ogden's population was 1,464, to 1960, when 70,197 people called Ogden home.

Be sure to check out our gallery of the 150th Golden Spike anniversary, when two of the world's largest steam engine locomotives rolled into Ogden.
