A look at Layton's business district of 1913

Article Published 10/09/2014

A 1913 business description of Layton:
“Layton has business blocks that would be a credit to a much larger and more populous community, a fine new depot just completed by the Ogden Short Line railway and a neat little depot building is nearing completion on the electric line. There are four stores handling implements and vehicles, three general stores, one drug store, a national bank, butcher shop, two restaurants, flourishing shops, pool hall, paint and wall paper house, coal yards, lumber yard and blacksmith shop.”
