Founded in 1850, Weber County occupies a stretch of the Wasatch Front, part of the eastern shores of the Great Salt Lake, and much of the rugged Wasatch Mountains.

The Ogden and Weber rivers flow through the county. The Ogden empties into the Weber River after flowing through Ogden Valley, cutting through Ogden Canyon, and passing through the city of Ogden.

Popular with beaver trappers in the early 1800s, Weber County has seen large growth since its founding and boasts many amenities like colleges, malls, and industry.
