Ogden is the northernmost city in the Wasatch Front, a city conglomerate that also includes the cities of Salt Lake City and Provo with about 2.4 million residents, which represents about 80 percent of Utah's total population.

The city has an active business sector with the food and aviation industry, service and finance. Ogden is the westernmost of two federal tax collection centers in the United States. The tax administration body is Ogden's largest employer with over 5000 employees. The Weber State University was founded in 1889.

The transcontinental railroad was linked at Promontory Point off Ogden in 1869. The town was established around Fort Buenaventura, also known as Bent's Fort, a meeting place for fur hunters from the 1820s, and gained city status under the name Brownsville in 1847. The name was changed in 1850 to Ogden - named after Peter Skene Ogden, a well-known manager of the Hudson's Bay Company. Mormon Brigham Young is considered the city's founder.
