North Ogden is where the Mormon pioneers first butted heads with the indigenous Shoshone. The first non-native settlers were cattle ranchers and the Shoshone chased them back to Fort Ogden within a couple months of their arrival. A year later, the problems with the Shoshone were partially taken care of and the ranchers returned for good. Farmers came, too, and within a few years, sugar beets were a growing industry in the area. A processing and canning plant was built in North Ogden and operated for many years. A rail line was built north from Ogden to carry away the increasing amount of agricultural goods being produced and the agricultural industry in the area boomed until the time of the Great Depression. These days, North Ogden is mostly a bedroom community for the workers of Ogden.
