AlwaysOgden.com started about 16 years ago as a way for me to show off all of the great recreation places, restaurants, events and features that the Ogden area has to offer… Mayor Matthew Godfrey was in office and Ogden was beginning to change from the sleepy, inexpensive railroad town. Then, the Recession knocked us off the stool. The great projects were put on hold, foreclosures skyrocketed and the momentum of the early 2000’s was lost for a few years. One of the first posts I did was on the Wonder Bread plant, located in the middle of Ogden. The amazing smell of bread, Twinkies, HoHos, and more, spread throughout the city. The smell was especially delicious when I would be leaving the gym…
From out of nowhere, some horrible hackers got ahold of my lovely site, turning it into rubbish – it took years to rid the site of the shocking posts! I am a firm believer in incredibly long and confusing passwords, lots of editing and checking comments on the page, and keeping material relevant and exciting. Which is where the City of Ogden is today – relevant and exciting!
Beyond the thrill of Historic 25th Street, there’s so much more. Don’t miss the amazing Monarch, Nine Rails Arts District, and the upcoming Wonder Block. Watch for massive community murals that dot the city streets. Art galleries have sprouted, along with cute cafes, new coffee shops, record stores, and community theaters. Ogden also possesses quaint housing stock, which has improved dramatically over the past ten years. My goal is to bring these homes, businesses, people and places to your fingertips.
In addition to Utah Real Estate, you’ll get to know my great agents, who are at your beck and call. I’m also including my favorite vendors! From contractors to best hang outs, you’ll be able to see them all.
