For more than 30 years, we've been preserving Weber County's heritage
Thank you for visiting our website!
We're an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit foundation. We've just relaunched our site during May 2013, and will be adding several new features now that we've upgraded to a more sophisticated program. This will include a searchable database with Weber County photos, documents, videos and recordings. We hope to have this part of the site functional by early 2014.
You’re looking for a quality furniture restorer, and you’ve come to the right place. For many years, we’ve been restoring and refinishing high quality interior furnishings--both new and old, large and small--for both residential and commercial customers.

Tickets for our first ever Christmas Historic House Tour go on sale November 1st. The tour is Friday, December 13th from 4-8 p.m. and features six festively decorated homes as well as dessert and light hors d’oeuvres buffets. Purchase event tickets at: Eccles Community Art Center, 2580 Jefferson Avenue, Ogden; or Shepherd’s Bush, 220 24th Street, Ogden (please pay with cash or a check at this location). Because of the high turnout at our Fall Historic House Tour, we'd strongly encourage you to purchase tickets in advance. Advanced sale tickets are $15 per person. Tickets the day of the tour are $20 per person. You’ll receive your ticket and event map at the time of purchase and can proceed directly to homes on the day of the tour. Parking and other event instructions are listed on the tickets.
This is a joint fundraiser with the Eccles Community Art Center sponsored byAmerica First Credit Union and R.A.M.P. Proceeds directly benefit the arts and historic preservation in Weber County. Your contribution is tax-deductible, as allowed by law.
We offer free architectural lectures during the year as well as several free self-guided architectural pamphlets on a variety of Ogden's architectural styles.
We are proud of some of the community restoration projects we've led in recent years, including the Ogden Lime Kiln Restoration and the World War I Monument Rededication at the Ogden City Cemetery.
