Wayne was the best! We always loved going there and Dad loved it as well. Definitely a North Ogden institution!

This was a North Ogden institution. So many of us have great memories here!

We moved to North Ogden in the 70’s. Started buying gas at Barkers. One visit was all it took for the Barker Brothers to know our name. Both my wife and I were treated like life long friends. In an age where every other gas station on the planet made you pump your own gas the Barkers washed your windows, checked your oil and tires while topping off your tank. They ran the best “Service Station” up to the day they retired.

That was also where the original stamp for water was

Ken Wilson worked there. He was so nice did the whole service on your vehicle.

Oh my gosh - I do. It was a mainstay for the area. Haven’t thought about Bakers in years. Brought a smile to my face and a giggle to my heart

I remember that little place so well. The nicest people in the world worked there.

Loved that. He was such a nice man. Tracy Larsen worked there too!

He was the best and I loved his wife.

Favorite place to go. He gave us gum and he always made every kid feel special. As a kid it was much more than a gas station. It where our friend worked.

I remember the “Chick Chick Inn”in the basement

Went there about 1 million times with my mom

Thats where my dad always went for gas.

Those were the days when they pumped the gas, checked your oil & cleaned your windshield. They were so kind & if you were thirsty you could always go to the Stump for a drink of water! ♥️

Went there about 1 million times with my mom

I remember they would always slip the little kids gum or candy. Loved that place.

What was that song Mr. Barker was always whistling? I can hear it now.

🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️ That was my grandpas!

I love going there when I was young! I remember Verl would always sneak me a red cream soda. Loved those men and that place.

I remember reid ReidandShirley Chambers worked there. Full service!!

I remember it very well, good honest folk

North Ogden's Red Brick School (626 E. 2600 N.) was constructed in 1890 at a cost of $3500.00. It featured a bell tower and three classrooms. The population quickly outgrew the school and it was demolished and replaced in 1908. The entire student body is posing in front, grades 1 through 8. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for sharing this photo. I wonder if any of my Campbell ancestors attended this school. I need to visit this museum.

Love this.....why can't those wonderful old bldgs just stick around forever.

I’m sure there were Randalls and Chadwicks also in this picture.

Sure there was a few Barkers and Chandlers

Beautiful building of yesteryear where construction materials would stand the test of time - except outgrowth.

That would be pretty cool still standing

$3,500 in 1890 → $98,287.69 in 2019

Is this where the current Ben Lomond stake center bldg is now?

My grandfather Joseph C Deamer could easily be in this picture, he was born in 1890 and grew up in North Ogden. The house he was born in is still standing!

I paid more than that for my first Dell desktop computer and accessories.

Holy school marm

Love historical photos

Do you know what year this picture was taken?

What a shame it was demolished.😒

This is where my father went to school.

Thank you for this picture. I will be able to use it as I tell of the experience of my father riding a box car loaded with bee's from Pleasant View to Malad Idaho. Thanks so much for your help at the Museum.the other day. It was so wonderful.I appreciate your time.

Wow, to think that a railroad line ran alongside Washinton Blvd. going out to N. Ogden! That was sure a long, long time ago!

Cool!

The Heber Huband home is pictured in 1912 and later in about the 1970s. The home was built by Frank Huband, he sold it to his brother Heber and wife Hattie in 1911. The home stayed in the family for many years and was later demolished. (504 E. 2650 N., North Ogden) ... See MoreSee Less

That is Hattie, Heber, Lane, Gene and Grant Huband in the picture. Love the house and the memories of these wonderful people.

My grandparents home & childhood hangout. I have many dreams of opening the kitchen door & walking in—my grandmother toasted bread on a long fork over hot coals in a wood-burning kitchen stove. There was a washroom near that entry where I saw my Grandfather shave, uncle Grant when he visited & later it’s where a Connie would fix her hair. Great for those who walked by on the way to school or to Ken’s Market but for me it was a second home full of the palpable memories & a great deal of love.

Oh my heck! I remember this home!

Saw it everyday on way to school. Gorgeous house love it

I love the old look of this home !! It’s sad they changed it

I remember they had a great patch of bright purple sweet peas at the front of their yard. I loved them!

I remember that house. Seen it everyday also. Great memory.

Liked the early home more......

I loved that house! Visited there a few times. We walked by it every day on the way to school.

Too bad. That is a nice looking house.

This place looks familiar

I really like the brick version. That looks like it could be there forever. Sad that it was demolished.

I seem to remember hearing that the wide front window was added because the lady of the house was in a wheelchair or bedridden, and the window made it possible for her to look out at the neighborhood. Is that right?

So, wth? Not there anymore..I'm assuming.
