1890 · The Sherman Antitrust Act

Age 4

This Act tried to prevent the raising of prices by restricting trade. The purpose of the Act was to preserve a competitive marketplace to protect consumers from abuse.
1898 · The Ogden Utah Sugar Factory Opens

Age 12

The Ogden Utah Sugar Factory harvested sugar from beets because sugar cane was hard to grow in northern Utah. During World War, it was hard to get sugar beet seeds, so the company started to harvest the seeds of the beets they were using. The Company merged with a factory in Logan to create the Amalgamated Sugar Company which is still operational today.
1909 · A Summer Capitol

Age 23

Besides farming and shipping with the trolley up to Ogden Valley, there was an effort to convince the state of Utah to have a summer capitol near the town of Huntsville. Even though it didn’t happen, the Ogden Rapid Transit Company extended the Trolley route to Huntsville, so others could vacation there.
