1938 · The DI is Opened To The Public

Age 1

Deseret Industries is a non-profit organization and a division of Welfare Services of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It includes a chain of retail thrift stores and work projects. Many of the items sold are second hand or never used. Such items include furniture, appliances, computers, and clothing. The DI also sells new furniture, much of it received directly from its own manufacturing plant in Salt Lake City. The DI provides job skill training for the physically, emotionally and socially challenged and seeks to place them into private sector employment.

1938 · Welfare Square

Age 1

Welfare Square helps provide material assistance to poor and otherwise needy individuals and families. Welfare Square is part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Church Welfare System. Welfare Square provides regular employment for around fifty people, in addition to the two hundred rotating volunteers needed to provide its services and run its operations.

1939 · Hill Air Force Base

Age 2

Named in honor of Major Ployer Peter Hill, Hill Field started as an ill-fated Air Mail experiment. Hoping to be located closer to the Salt Lake City area, the present-day site near Ogden was a clear favorite. In July 1939, Congress gave the green light for the establishment and construction of the Ogden Air Depot. Hill Field officially opened on 7 November 1940. Hill Field officially became Hill Air Force Base after World War II and continued to store and maintain warplanes during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Today the Air Force Base is still in service, but it also has an Aerospace Museum on site where many people visit each year to learn of its history in Northern Utah.
