MarLon Hills has an interesting name that is rich in South Ogden history. Before there was a MarLon Hills, the land was owned by Marie and James Alonzo "Lonnie" Stephens. Mr. Stephens was an active community member who would get up early in the morning during winter months and, using a V-shaped plow hitched to his horse, would open pathways along Adams Avenue so the children could get to the local school safely. Later he served on the South Ogden City Council for 10 years and helped shape our Burch Creek/South Ogden area. During MarLon Hills' construction in 1960, Lonnie named the school in honor of his sister Mary (Mar) and after himself (Lon). The school was contracted at a cost of $354,900 by Wayne Jensen Construction Company and was completed in March of 1961.
