About Morgan

The city of Morgan is located on both sides of the Weber River in the grassland of Morgan Valley. A ways to the east of town the Weber River emerges from the Upper Weber Canyon, and flows through the north end of Morgan Valley. Mountains surround the valley in all directions, and those along the western side are especially tall and often snow-capped.

Morgan is located in the mountains east of the city of Ogden, and its rural and mountainous setting has become an attraction for commuters who work in Ogden but want to live in the country. The slopes of the valley are dotted with upscale homes.

Morgan was settled in the 1860s and is named after an early settler, Jedediah Morgan Grant, who was the father of Heber J. Grant, one of the past presidents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the Mormons). A major line of the railroad passes through Morgan, and its Commercial Street fronts the railroad, which is still in use today. The originally platted part of the town is across the river. Interstate 84 also passes through modern-day Morgan. State Highway 66 is the main street of the town (called State Street) and it continues southward through Morgan Valley and up East Canyon to the East Canyon Reservoir.

Morgan’s population was 3,687 at the 2010 census, having doubled in about 30 years. It is the county seat and only major town of Morgan County. The elevation ranges from about 5,050 feet on the river to 5,200 feet where some houses sit on the mountainside.
