    1872 · The First National Park

    Age 2

    Yellowstone National Park was given the title of the first national park by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant. It is also believed to be the first national park in the world.

    1884 · There is now a Capital Building

    Age 14

    The capitol building in Des Moines originally had a budget of $1,500,000 but complications arose because of the need of a redesign. The building was dedicated on January 17, 1884, but it wasn’t completed until 1886. On January 4, 1904, a fire started and swept through the areas that housed the Supreme Court and Iowa House of Representatives. A major restoration was performed and documented, with the addition of electrical lighting, elevators, and a telephone system. By the early 1980s, the sandstone exterior of the Capitol had started deteriorating and prompted the installation of canopies to protect pedestrians from falling rubble. The entire reconstruction process took around 18 years to complete.


    Age 16

    Statue of Liberty is dedicated.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name chiefly from Hesleden in Halton Gill (Yorkshire), though Monk Hesleden (Durham), Haselden (Sussex), Haslingden (Lancashire), and Hazledon Farm (Wiltshire) are alternative possibilities. The Sussex placename derives from Old English hæsel ‘hazel’ + denn ‘pasture’, while the Lancashire placename derives from Old English hæslen ‘growing with hazels’ + denu ‘valley’. The other placenames derive from Old English hæsel + denu. There has been some confusion with Hazelton .
