About Union Station

Ogden, Utah

Ogden is located in Weber County, Utah. It is a city of about 90,000 residents. The city of Ogden was a major railway hub through much of its history. Today it still handles a great deal of freight rail traffic.

Union Station Information:

On March 8, 1869, the Union Pacific came through Ogden on its way to Promontory Point to meet the Central Pacific to complete the Transcontinental Railway.

The first station was built in 1869, but it became inadequate soon after. A new station, which was much larger than the first and constructed of brick rather than wood, was finally built in 1889. It burned down in 1923. A hotel room in the depot had caught fire, which quickly spread through the building. No deaths or injuries occurred in this event. However, a stone from the clock tower eventually fell and killed a railroad clerk. It was at this time that the building was finally condemned. 

The next station was completed in 1924. In 1977, as passenger service started to diminish, Ogden City received a 50 year lease from Union Pacific for the Union Station building. Renovations began to for a planned museum. At the dedication ceremony in 1978, Union Pacific brought the famous UP 8444 at the head of a special passenger train from Cheyenne, to the new museums. In 1988 the State of Utah designated the Union Station as the Utah State Railroad Museum.

The Station now houses three museums, Utah State Railroad Museum, John M. Browning Firearms Museum, Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum, three fine arts galleries and Warren’s Train Shop, Union Grill Restaurant, the U.S. Forest Service Information, and the Union Station Library.
