Nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains, Weber State University has been serving the Greater Weber and Davis County communities for over 125 years. On January 7, 1889, Weber Stake Academy opened its doors for the first time to approximately 100 students. The academy continued to grow and develop through five name changes and several relocations. Throughout this time, the institution survived many financial and political struggles. Today, the university has increased in size to accommodate over 26,000 students. This pictorial history was put together in commemoration of Weber's 125th anniversary, and it provides a compelling look into the struggles and ultimate survival of a historic academic institution.

Jamie J. Weeks is the curator and Kandice N. Harris is the coordinator of the Weber State University Archives. Four years ago, they started a project to scan 250,000 negatives to provide access to an untapped resource. This new image database, along with many historical photographs, has allowed them to collect over 200 of their best images depicting some of the most interesting moments in the school's history. Weber State University aims to touch the hearts of the community it has served so faithfully for over 125 years.
