South Weber was the site of the Morrisite War. On June 13, 1862, an estimated 500-man army perched cannons atop the bluffs on the south side of the city, aimed at Joseph Morris. The war lasted three days, and ultimately resulted in the death of Joseph Morris, John Banks, and a few others. Upon seeing their leaders dead, the remainder of the Morrisites surrendered.
South Weber is also known for a week of Bigfoot sightings in February 1980. For one week, residents reported signs of the legendary Sasquatch. At the time, multiple residents claimed to have seen the creature while feeding horses, smelled foul "bigfoot" odors, and found large patches of strange fur throughout the small community. Although no animal was ever found, the legend lives on.
Business Week magazine named South Weber the sixth best suburb in the country in 2009.
South Weber is located in northeastern Davis County, bordered to the north by the Weber County line.
