Overview

NOTORIOUS TWO-BIT STREET is a history of three city blocks in the midst of a Mormon community in Ogden, Utah, that were dramatically infected with vice, crime, immorality, gambling, and drinking, following the arrival of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. The Mormons had immigrated to Utah to escape the persecution they had suffered in three previous locations on the frontier, finally settling in the western wilderness, believing they would be free of the evils of the past. Now they were saddled with social misfits who sought a place where lawless pursuits could be practiced without fear of prosecution.
