Debs,

It depends on what you are looking for. You must be thinking of Washington Terrace as a place to live correct? Most of the homes there are older and smaller. It was originally designed, I think, as kind of a blue collar community for people without alot of income. If you cannot afford to buy an expensive home it might be a good place. Its close to downtown Ogden (although there is not much there these days). Some of the houses near the hospital are nicer and more expensive. The high school in the area--Bonneville High--is a good school. Anything else you need to know?

Default The "Terrace"

Washington Terrace was built in the 1940's as housing for Hill Air force base people. It has good schools, the gangs are more in Ogden city, (as we all affectionatly call Little Mexico).
Lots to do in Ogden area, skiing is the best, Pineview resevoir has boating and some beaches to play on. lots of fishing in the area, The mayor of Ogden is trying to make Ogden family friendly and working on the gang problems. I just dont know any city that is winning that issue.
The people in the "Terrace" are well diversified.
Lots of kids there, I think you would like it there.

Oh, we wanted to walk through Downtown Ogden just to see what it was like while we were waiting for a FrontRunner train - big mistake... I wish the mayor the best in cleaning the city up.

Mayor Godfrey has his work cut out for him. One has to admire his pluck though. He's done what older, more experienced men either refused to do, or could not do. He's gotten the Ogden Mall project going. When its done its going to look pretty nice. Although, there won't be much shopping there.

Once upon a time, Ogden was a huge railroad hub. During World War II, about 100 passenger trains a day came through the city. Even as late as the 1950's, I'm told about 40 passenger trains a day came through. In the sixties, passenger train service died out as everyone began traveling by jet airplane. By 1970, passenger rail service ceased. Over the next fifteen years, dramatic changes in the way railroads ran their freight services occurred too. The railroads shut down most of their freight and dispatch operations in Ogden. These were not only jobs, they were very high paying jobs that added much more to the community than a job working in a convenience store added. Other businesses that were dependent on the railroads shut down as well. It was a huge blow to the local economy.

What's really sad though is that many of these events took place 40 years ago or more. When that amount of time passes, a community should be available to evolve and develop other industries. Not enough has been done and much of Ogden has slowly turned into a ghetto.

The Weber County Area is a dynamic area. You see lots of positive development in Roy, South Ogden, Riverdale, North Ogden, and Pleasant View. Its the downtown that remains a virtual tragedy.
