The original Salt Palace was built in 1899 and It stood on 900 South, between State Street and Main Street. The Salt Palace was a frame structure covered in large pieces of rock salt, which gave it its name. The Salt Palace was destroyed by fire on August 29, 1910 and was replaced by the Majestic Hall. This Hall only lasted for a while during the remodel of the Salt Palace. The Salt Palace served as the Olympic Media Center during the 2002 Winter Olympics.

1911 · The Salt Lake Airport

Age 13

The site for the Salt Lake International Airport started as a desolate area of the Valley that was originally used to herd sheep. A cinder-covered landing strip was subsequently created for the Great International Aviation Carnival that was held later in that same year. It brought many pioneers of the aviation industry. Aviator Glenn H. Curtiss brought his newly invented Seaplane to the carnival and demonstrated it to the public by taking off from the Great Salt Lake. It slowly grew until Charles Lindbergh visited that area. After his visit, the airfield changed into a Municipal Airport and started being a hub for most flights from New York to California. After World War II, the airport turned into an international hub for most flights in the Mountain West. In recent history, it sees around 30 million travelers each year and continues to grow in popularity by travelers to and from Utah. It became a hub for Delta Air Lines after its merger with Western Airlines.
