More about Eden:
Eden is a census-designated place in Weber County, Utah, United States. It is home to Powder Mountain ski resort. It lies between the North and Middle Fork of the Ogden River, north of Pineview Reservoir, in the Ogden Valley. The first home here was a log cabin built in 1857 for summer herdsmen Erastus Bingham and Joseph Hardy. A community was established in 1859 when fifteen families moved in via North Ogden Canyon and Pass. The settlers hired a government surveyor, Washington Jenkins, to plot the town. Jenkins said he thought the area was one of the most beautiful sites he had ever surveyed and suggested the biblical name “Eden”. An earlier temporary name was North Fork Town.
More about Liberty:
Liberty lies in the northwestern Ogden Valley of the Wasatch Range, approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) across the North Ogden Divide and east of North Ogden and 2 miles (3.2 km) northwest of Eden. Near Liberty are Nordic Valley, Utah State Route 158, and the Nordic Valley ski resort. To the southeast, just past Eden, are Pineview Reservoir and the town of Huntsville. Avon Road, formerly State Route 162, leads north over the Avon Pass to Avon.
British trapper and explorer Peter Skene Ogden was the first European to map and describe the “Ogden Hole” valley which would later include Liberty. The Liberty area was settled beginning in 1859 as an outgrowth of Eden. In 1892, a separate townsite was laid out and a separate ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints organized. The name came from John Freeman’s remarks that both cattle and people took “full liberty” in the area.
Settlement happened gradually, homes built one at a time rather than in tract housing. Traditionally a farming and ranching community, Liberty has developed in recent years into a recreational community and commuter town for the Ogden area.
