  1. Excellence is never achieved by accident - it is always the result of vision, integrity, planning, and hard work. Excellence is the goal of everything we do in the Weber County Library System (WCLS). But in its pursuit, we never lose sight of the Library's greatest resource, its people. This year, we celebrate our 110th anniversary. Library service in Ogden City had its beginnings in the 1860's, but it was not until 1903 that the Ogden Carnegie Free Library, the first public library building in Utah, opened its doors. In 1968 the Weber County Main Library was dedicated, and the Carnegie Free Library's rich historical collection became the core resource of this new flagship of Utah's first countywide system. This collection has since been systematically enhanced, facilities added, and innovative programs have been created and honed to continually improve services to area residents. http://www.weberpl.lib.ut.us/online-resources/genealogy View full record

  3. The Cache Valley Historical Society formed on October 24th, 1951 as the first local chapter of the Utah State Historical Society. Dues were set at $1.00 for the first 52 members of the Society and Dr. Joel E. Ricks gave the first monthly lecture in the basement of the old library. The first major job if the Society was to encourage the publication of a general history of Cache Valley for the 100th anniversary of Cache Valley settlement and when The History of a Valley came out in 1956 the Society was recognized with an award of merit from the Association for State and Local History. The preservation of historical documents was also a major early focus and in 1953 a partnership began with the Utah State University Library (which continues to this day through the Special Collections and Archives department) for the preservation of pioneer diaries, journals, letters, and photographs. http://www.cachevalleyhistory.com/ View full record
  4. The initial mission statement of the society is, "To preserve and [share] the past of Highland City for a better present and future." As their first project, Greenland, Schoenfeld and other historical society members are working to put together a comprehensive written history of the city. In addition to the written history, the historical society is planning a small museum in the Highland Community Center, 5378 West 10400 North. The museum will display a collection of historical artifacts, for example, household items and small tools. The historical society meets the second Wednesday of each month at Highland City Hall, at 7:00 p.m. The meetings are always open to the public. If you have items you'd like to donate or lend to be displayed at the museum, give Greenland a call at 801-913-5200. http://www.highlandcity.org/index.aspx?nid=433 View full record
  5. The objective of the organization of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers is to preserve our pioneer heritage and to honor the names and memories of those pioneers who came to Utah prior to May 10, 1869. This is the date when the two railroads, one from the East coast and one from the West coast, joined together in Utah. We desire to educate our children and other descendants to appreciate their heritage and those who prepared the way for us. http://www.duptooeleco.org/ View full record

    Town: Parowan

    It is impossible to say just when the settlement of Parowan actually began. Undoubtedly it was settled centuries ago by Native American Tribes. Native American civilization is evidenced by the many sites containing petroglyphs. Others came also. In 1776, while the continental Congress was deliberating American independence in Philadelphia, Father Escalante was exploring this area. But the settlement that exists here today is traceable and well documented. In 1847 Brigham Young entered the Salt Lake valley which was then Mexican Territory. Young was the leader of the Mormons (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) and considered a prophet by members of the church. He announced that they had reached the place they were seeking as a refuge from the persecutions they experienced in states like New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Iowa. http://parowan.org/history/ View full record

    About the Museum The Syracuse Museum and Cultural Center celebrates and preserves local history of the city of Syracuse and its early citizens. The main building houses extensive collections of personal belongings that came to Utah in the early pioneer days, Syracuse baseball teams, toys, music, clothing, furniture, and family histories. The Farm and Home building houses items that show the extensive agricultural past of Syracuse when the town was the largest producer of fruit in Davis County in the early 1900s. Dairy production is also emphasized and on display is our claim to fame: the two-headed calf. Also housed in this building is a replica general dry goods store and the town's first fire truck. The Rentmeister Library of Utah history books is nestled between a blacksmith shop and memorabilia from the local soda shop. http://syracuseut.com/Community/DiscoverSyracuse/SyracuseMuseum.aspx View full record
