The trains didn’t just bring the hustle and bustle of people and cargo to Ogden, it also brought criminals looking to make a dime in the booming railroad town.
By the 1940’s Ogden was given the infamous title as the nation’s 10th most popular home to violent criminals. Two-Bit street was the street that if you were looking for trouble, you’d find it, and any “respectable” women avoided at all costs.
