OREM, Utah – The City of Orem is taking its social media followers on a trip back in time.

The city posted this video on its Facebook page showing what a drive down State St. looked like 50 years ago.

The year was 1966; the Beatles were king, Lyndon Johnson was president and only 20,000 people called Orem home.

Nearly 100,000 people live there now.

Most of what you see in the video has been replaced by new buildings and businesses but the Miracle Bowl still sits at 15th South.
