The area now known as South Ogden, Utah, was previously called Burch Creek. The first settlers were primarily immigrants, originally from the eastern United States or Europe, who came to settle Utah with the Mormon migration. These first residents included the Burchs from Kentucky, the Stephens from North Carolina, the Garners from Germany, and the Beus and Combes from Italy. On July 6, 1936, the 800 residents voted to incorporate the area into a city. The city now has more than 16,000 residents, and areas that once were farms, dirt roads, open fields, cattails, and springs are now homes, businesses, schools, parks, and churches. South Ogden has earned its reputation as a great place to grow up, a fine place to raise a family, and a safe and peaceful place to live out retirement years.
