The historic Ogden Exchange Building, located at 600 Exchange Rd, Ogden, Utah was built in 1931.
Once the biggest livestock market in the west, millions of sheep, cattle, horses and more per year were sold here. It was part of the large industrial stockyard area of western Ogden.
The U.S. Government originally granted this land to the Union Pacific Railroad in partial payment for building the rail line just north of here. The gathering of land that is now Secrist Acres began in 1888 when it was deeded from the railroad to brothers, Brigham H. Bingham Jr. and Edwin A. Bingham. At the time of this transfer the land was raw, needing clearing and preparation for irrigation. The land was farmed by the Binghams until 1942 when it was sold to Charles Allen and Hazel Bingham Secrist. These were war years and times were difficult, but proved to be rewarding. The Secrists have always been active in their community, schools and church helping to make (Wilson) West Haven a better place. Their dream was to add to the community in the form of a quality planned development to be known as ‘Secrist Acres.’

On the evening of September 16, 1850, Shoshone Indian Chief Terikee, who had a reputation for being friendly, was returning to his camp on Four Mile Creek after paying respects to Lorin Farr in Ogden.
As he was driving his ponies out of Urban Stewart’s unfenced cornfield, Stewart armed himself and fired randomly toward the rustling sound, killing Terikee. This incident forced Stewart to leave the area.
Shoshone tribes demanded Stewart be turned over to them or they would massacre the inhabitants of Ogden and burn the settlement. 150 men were sent from Salt Lake City to the rescue. Learning of the coming troops, Terikee’s band retaliated by killing a man named Campbell, who was gathering cattle into Farr’s Fort, and then took their Chief’s body and retreated northward.
Chief Terikee was killed at a site approximately 200 feet west of this monument.
This monument is located in Harrisville, Utah.
Plain City, Utah
The Salt Lake Valley settlement began when wagon trains of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began arriving in 1847. By 1858, farmers from the then-settled towns of Lehi and Kay’s Creek, looking for a new place to homestead, began considering the area now known as Plain City. On 17 March 1859, led by Lorin Farr, a group arrived to begin homesteading. Soon after arriving, the group surveyed a townsite and assigned building lots. The town layout used an organized grid system of blocks and streets, originally six blocks north-to-south and three blocks east-to-west. Each block was 5 acres in area, divided into 4 lots. The first settlers were allowed their choice in selection of a lot.
Warren is an unincorporated community in Weber County.
Originally settled in 1870 under the name of Salt Creek, it was renamed in 1896 in honor of Lewis Warren Shurtliff, the local stake president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
