Ogden, an incorporated town of Riley county, is located on the Kansas river and the Union Pacific R. R., 11 miles southwest of Manhattan, the county seat. The railroad name is Ogdenburg. It has telegraph and express offices and a money order postoffice with one rural route. The population in 1910 was 190. This is one of the oldest towns in the county. The first house erected within the county limits was in the vicinity of Ogden. The Ogden Town company was chartered in 1857 by act of the legislature, and a government land office was established at this point in the same year, but soon afterward was removed to Junction City. When the United States government ordered Pawnee (q. v.) vacated, Gov. Reeder moved his somewhat imposing residence to Ogden. This was the first judicial seat of Riley county and was in other ways an important point. It had all lines of business, warehouses, wholesale establishments, etc. In 1870 it was made a city of the second class.
