I was interested in Merrill Spendlove's letter on Monday, August 1, regarding the small amount of taxes going to North Ogden and what the city does with it (I was born and raised in North Ogden). One thing he didn't menton is the city museum which has been housed in and upstairs room accessed by steep stairs. I visited there a few weeks ago and I am amazed at the amount of information and artifacts housed there. The room is well kept, everything is labeled and filed. The story boards made by museum board members are interesting, as are maps of the mountains and their peaks which are identified.
I understand the city has purchased a home near the North Ogden Park which will house the museum. This will allow better access, more room to walk around to see the displays and look up information. I think North Ogden citizens ought to get behind this effort so that bygone clothing and artifacts can be seen, and so people can use the bounteous references available to identify things of interest to their families.
