Brigham Young, urban planning and the 'City of Zion' plat
Ogden, 1848 »1 of 12 «
Utah Historical Society
According to an article on lds.org, Ogden was originally settled by a mountain man named Miles Goodyear, who helped convince the Mormon newcomers to settle elsewhere. They ultimately ended up in the Salt Lake Valley. In late 1847, Captain James Brown purchased Goodyear's land for $1,950, and Brownsville was established. The area officially became known as Ogden City in 1851.
