OGDEN RISING: Scenes of Rejuvination

OGDEN RISING:  Scenes of Rejuvination


Ogden continues to be a city in metamorphosis.  Here are a few photos that illustrate the ever increasing investment in Ogden’s Downtown neighborhoods:

Ogden Victorian Home 2

This victorian home located on the 26th block of Madison Ave. was converted into an unseemly triplex many decades ago.

Fortunately, a new owner renovated the property and restored it back to single family use.  Quite a remarkable difference!


2624 Madison - Before Rehab

I listed and sold this property last year to an investor who wanted to restore this 1880s Victorian building.  The building was abandoned and configured into a dysfunctional triplex at the time.

The work is almost done and the difference is amazing.


Stimpsons - 2

Back in the 1950’s, Stimpson’s market was a popular convenience store and ice cream parlor in the neighborhood.  It transformed into a Carneceria along the way and then went vacant for the past few years.

Demolition crews just completed their work making way for new development.

Laundromat 2

A companion laundromat also appears to have met the same fate.

Meanwhile, luxury apartments are being built at the corner of 23rd St. and Washington Blvd.

New Dee School - Ogden

The new Dee School at 22nd St. and Madison Ave. is nearly complete and should be ready for occupancy this next school year.


There is a lot going on in Ogden.  More good things are certainly on their way!
