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.

Sure there was a few Barkers and Chandlers

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!

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.

Love historical photos

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?

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

Holy school marm

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

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!

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

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

Liked the early home more......

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.

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.

Labeled: "North Ogden Children-1922," this photo came from Florence (Barker) Manning's files, so they may be Barker children. Can anyone identify them? ... See MoreSee Less

Like Julie said, I don't think any of Clarence and Myrtle Barker's kids had blonde hair. But I love everything about this photo.

Jeff Flinders I know Great Grandma was a manning and from Hooper but could it be cousins?

Sorry. I don't know. I probably found photo and gave it to museum but with no identification.

What a wonderful photo!!

That's Manny, moe and jack
