About

Ogden City and other community partners have established the Nine Rails Creative District in Ogden, Utah. This district will create new opportunities for the community to engage with art in the public realm, and will support places and programs that encourage creative people to live and work in Ogden. The Nine Rails Creative District has been identified as the area between Grant and Madison Avenues, from 24th to 26th Streets.

The name Nine Rails pays tribute to Ogden’s history as a railroad town, originally a major connection point on the Transcontinental Railroad and later, during World War II, a hub for nine different rail lines. “You can’t get anywhere without coming to Ogden” was a city slogan for a decade or more. The Nine Rails name is also symbolic of the Nine Muses from Greek mythology, with each muse representing a different form of artistic expression.

The Nine Rails Creative District Master Plan was adopted by Ogden City Council in 2018. We invite you to explore the master plan and concept designs for key projects in Nine Rails using the navigation menu provided above.
