Here are some facts about Ogden, Weber County:

Ogden /ˈɒɡdən/ is a city in and the county seat of Weber County,[7] Utah, United States, approximately 10 miles (16 km) east of the Great Salt Lake and 40 miles (64 km) north of Salt Lake City. The population was 87,773 in 2019, according to the US Census Bureau, making it Utah’s seventh-largest city.[8] The city served as a major railway hub through much of its history,[9] and still handles a great deal of freight rail traffic which makes it a convenient location for manufacturing and commerce. Ogden is also known for its many historic buildings, proximity to the Wasatch Mountains, and as the location of Weber State University.

Ogden is a principal city of the Ogden–Clearfield, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), which includes all of Weber, MorganDavis, and Box Elder counties. The 2010 Census placed the Metro population at 597,159.[10] In 2010, Forbes rated the Ogden-Clearfield MSA as the 6th best place to raise a family.[11] Ogden has had a sister city relationship to Hof in Germany since 1954. The current mayor is Mike Caldwell.

Originally named Fort Buenaventura, Ogden was the first permanent settlement by people of European descent in what is now Utah. It was established by the trapper Miles Goodyear in 1846 about a mile west of where downtown Ogden sits today.

Ogden is the closest sizable city to the Golden Spike location at Promontory Summit, Utah, where the First Transcontinental Railroad was joined in 1869. It 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.”[12] 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). However, Amtrak, the national passenger rail system, no longer serves Ogden. Passengers who want to travel to and from Ogden by rail must travel via FrontRunner commuter rail to Salt Lake City and Provo.
