Where was the first one? Was it at the same place?

Do you have any names of the individuals in the photos? Of course it looks like one of them is Joseph Fielding Smith.

I went to Sunday school class in the boiler room of the Old chapel when I was very young and grew up going to the New Chapel through most of my teen yrs. Also my family did the lath & plastering in the Building 1956-7. And the new Stake offices on the west side of the Chapel myself and my cousin plastered the ceilings in there around 1974.😊

I was very young but remember going to that old church and have memories of the new one being built. My grandpa Orton was custodian at the old church and would let me help him.

Yes this is our church ⛪ we love it!

They don't make them like that anymore. Lots of creative architecture went into this building.

Went to this church N Ogden 1st ward. 1960 when I was in 1st grade. My Uncle Allen Barth lived across the street. Remembering walking to primary from N Ogden Elementry. Remember Roberta Storey, Mavis Bastian, Veda Rudd, Sis Costley, Those were great times. Then the building was built on 3100N in 1965. First Bishop of the the 5th Ward was Lincoln Sorensen.

So so many fond memories in First ward. Going to primary after school then, Sunday school, and priestood, mutual, was baptized there, many ward dinners, Cub scouts, Scouts, basketball games, can't forget those, 1 and a half hour Sacrement meetings, Christmas parties, so so many more great memories, and poignat ones of many family funerals, what a great church building, it's a special place to me. Especially blessed with so many great teachers and advisors and church leaders, what a great place and time to grow up, and as part of my adulthood, Thanks for posting , love picture from the air.

I went to meetings in the current building for a few different places I lived. My son was baptized there.

Janet Kay Barker I remember Grandpa Barth helped build this Chapel.

I remember well, the old, before the new, where I was baptized, passed and blessed the sacrament. I cut the lawn in and around the old building as a youngster. Special memories.

This was my grandparents church.

I see Glen and Florence Hadley's home.

So interesting to see this

This is so cool!! Thank you for sharing!

I worked with Allen Barth at UP&L co

I like looking at the empty space.

I know. I showed this to Dayton. So cool watching it.

I was baptized in the one that is there now in 1963.

I remember that old church!!!

Colleen Grandy Glass it’s our church?

I think that is actually Magaret Shaw on the far right. Della was older in 27.

That photo made my day. DELLA Shaw Chandler is my grandmother (grandfather took pic) I have never seen this before!

Lucille was my Grandma, Marjorie’s cousin, Bingham side. My 3rd cousin, twice removed, according to Family Tree.

I remember when my Mom took me for a hike up there. We were just going to go as far as where we could look over into North Ogden. When we got there, my mom said “Look how close we are. Let’s keep going.” I said “ Mom, it’s not close and we don’t have any water.” Needless to say, that was the first time I viewed the world from the summit of Ben Lomond. Amazing, but there’s no water up there. Thanks Mom for making me push on! 😅

Went up there many times on a hike from camp. Amazing

This is where I learned to swim. Lots of great memories!

I remember taking my adult kids there and it seemed plenty big 😂😂😂

Jumped the fence and went swimming at midnight, good times

I was taught how to swim there and I still have a couple of scars from one of the many times I jumped off the diving board. Such fond memories...

Good memories here! I remember many family times here & swimming lessons. Thanks for posting!

That’s an amazing photo of the kids in 1920. Thanks! Great post. Remember this swimming hole well!

I still have my swimming lesson booklet! I remember diving for pennies.

Spent a few summers there, 1961 to 1964. Remember riding my bike there when we lived in Mt Erie.

I spent my summers there ❤️

Best place to spend the summer.

Spent a lot of time there every summer

Spent my summers growing up here!

I remember that place

Awe memories

Big memories
