Shoshone Walking Tour
On September 29, 2002, Shoshone Elder Darren Parry met a group for a tour of the oldest neighborhood in Ogden.
Honor-named "Chief Little Soldier Way" in 2021, 2nd Street in Ogden, Utah was once called Bingham Fort Lane: a pioneer street surveyed in 1851 and the beginning of the Five Points settlement. "Today a pioneer farm and 12 pioneer homes still stand on 2nd Street west of Washington Blvd.; these are among the oldest houses in Ogden."
"Before and after the settlers came, Shoshone Indians and other tribes camped in today’s Bingham Fort subdivision by a pond and in today’s BDO area near Mill Creek. Shoshone Chief Terikee and Chief Little Soldier set a tone of friendliness to the first white settlers in Weber County in 1848." (binghamsfort.org)
