Our History

The Foundation was founded in 1978 by citizens concerned about the loss of so many of Ogden's historic structures and wanting to engage the community in the county's great history. In the past, we have been able to help with the restoration of important projects such as Peery's Egyptian Theater, Ogden High School, The Ogden Cemetery Gold Star Avenue, and the Daughters of the Utah Pioneer Museum in Ogden.
