The Oldest Town In Utah That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once

Can you name the oldest town in Utah? If you said Salt Lake City, you’re wrong. Every Utahn knows the story of Brigham Young standing at the foot of Emigration Canyon and declaring this to be the “right place,” but he and the Mormon pioneers arrived in July, 1847. By then, our oldest town had already been settled for two years! Ogden, established in 1845, might get overshadowed by its larger cousin to the south, but it has every bit as much history and charm. Here’s why you should visit!

What’s your favorite thing about Ogden? We love to read your comments!

Utah’s small towns are awfully charming, too. Take our road trip to visit 10 of them.
