Historic 25th Street in Ogden UT

Historic 25th Street is a historic district in Ogden, Utah, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in its lower half. Ogden's 25th Street has always been a bit of a rebel from the start. Historic 25th Street, dubbed "Salt Lake City's wicked little sister," has been defying traditional Utah stereotypes for more than a century. This street, known as Notorious Two-Bit Street and Electric Alley, has seen it all. The Historic 25th Street area spans three blocks of 25th Street, commencing on the west end at Wall Avenue and terminating on the east end at Washington Boulevard, with Lincoln and Grant Avenues running parallel.

The arrival of the Transcontinental Railroad paved the way for the development of 25th Street and its hotels, bars, and businesses. Passenger rail was largely rendered obsolete by commercial air travel and the Interstate highway system. For many years, 25th Street was boarded up without the daily influx of tens of thousands of passengers. Fortunately, the lean years kept developers off the street at a time when most cities were bulldozing old buildings to make way for homogenized strip malls. As a result, when Ogden was reborn as an outdoor recreation destination, all of the wonderful things were still there.

The Golden Spike, which was built fifty miles northwest of Union Station in 1869, connected the first transcontinental railroad and established a boom town in Ogden. It's hard to think that Historic 25th Street was once home to brothels, political scandals, and the "dark ages" of gang rivalries so strong that you couldn't stroll the three-block length in peace.

Today, 25th Street is a hotspot for tourists, art collectors, foodies, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds, with a different draw each season. Brew pubs, restaurants, art galleries, and privately owned shops have all helped to bring it back to life. During the summer, Historic 25th Street — also known as Two-Bit Street, Two-Five Drive, or H-Two-Five — is home to Ogden's Farmers Market, the main promenade for each month's First Friday Art Stroll, and the site of many of the city's festivals, including the Harvest Moon Celebration, Witchstock, and the Wasatch Yeti Bash.

Locals flock to 25th Street because of its historic structures and rich history. Restaurants, art galleries, and retail businesses line historic 25th Street, which also offers outdoor community activities like a farmers' market (July through September) and auto exhibitions. The Utah State Railroad Museums, the John M. Browning Arms Museum, and the Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum are all housed at the remodeled Union Station. The Federal Courthouse and the Ogden City Municipal Building are both located on this street. For tourists to Ogden who wish to learn about the history of the western United States, the street has become a tourist destination. The 2002 television series Everwood and the 1999 film Drive Me Crazy were both filmed on Twenty-Fifth Street.
