North Ogden located 3 miles north of Ogden is an outgrowth of of that city. It is on U-235, south of Brigham City. The Campbells and Riddles, Cattle ranching families from Ogden, attempted to settle the area in 1850. However, after wintering their cattle only a few months, problems with the Shoshone Indians forced them to return to Ogden. After the problem with the Indians had been partially resolved the following year, John Campbell and several other families returned to permanently settle there.
The Paramount Pictures logo, known as Majestic Mountain, was modeled after North Ogden’s own Mount Ben Lomond. William W. Hodkinson (known as the man to have invented Hollywood), a native of the Ogden area, initially drew the image on a napkin during a meeting in 1914.
