I hear the train a comin’
It’s rolling round the bend
On March 8, 1869, the first Union Pacific engine steamed into the city on the heels of tracklayers on their way to Promontory and eventual joining with the Central Pacific. Ogden’s romance with the railroading began.
In 1923, a hotel room in the depot caught fire. Fire quickly spread throughout the building. When the blaze was finally controlled the depot had received serious damage. The walls and clock tower were standing but in a fragile state.
Completed in 1924, the architecture of the new building is Spanish Colonial Revival style. The new building is 90 years old this year.
