OGDEN — In celebrating its grand reopening, Ogden’s 25th Street Museum is displaying one-of-a-kind artifacts from the Brent and Charlene Ashworth collection on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Amelia Earhart’s flight jacket, Butch Cassidy’s revolver, Muhammad Ali’s autographed boxing glove, George Washington’s wallet and dozens of other artifacts from the Ashworths’ collection will be at the museum for one day only.

According to 25th Street Museum board member Joseph Kerry, the Ashworth collection is one of the largest private historical collections.

“It’s just phenomenal, he (Brent Ashworth) has everything,” board member Emilea Middleton said of the Provo collector.

A special exhibit honoring the service of fallen Ogden Police Officer Charles Manzel will also be on display for the museum’s open house. Manzel was killed in the line of duty on May 9, 1921, where the museum now stands.

Three rooms and a hallway make up the quaint museum just above Legacy Tattoo on Historic 25th Street. With only a sign on a small door to the right of the shop, Middleton said all too often people walk into Legacy Tattoo looking for the museum.

While the museum never officially closed during the pandemic, Kerry said they have not been advertising or showcasing exhibits for the last two years and are excited to once again display historical artifacts.
