Pleasant View, Utah
As early as 11,000 B.C., Native Americans travelled through the area that is now considered Pleasant View which has lead to the discovery of many relics in the area. Trappers came to the area around 1824 to trap in the tributary springs and rivers. Pleasant View used to be considered a part of North Ogden for over 30 years and was known by many names (West District, Hot Springs District, Springtown, or Out West). It wasn't until 1882 that the city was officially named Pleasant View by Wilford Cragun who was born in the area. Other settlers soon followed and the area became more populated as time went on. The area's most popular feature is the abundance of natural hot springs in the north western corner near Box Elder County. This lovely city shares a border with the Wasatch Mountains to the north, Harrisville to the south, North Ogden to the west, and Farr West to the east.

This close proximity to Ogden Valley offers residents close access to popular tourist areas like Pineview Reservoir, Snowbasin Ski Resort, Powder Mountain Resort, and Nordic Valley.
