1884 · There is now a Capital Building

Age 4

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.

1900 · Gold for Cash!

Age 20

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Hollingworth (Cheshire), Hollingworth in Butterworth (Lancashire), or possibly Hollinworth Head in Charlesworth (Derbyshire), from Old English holegn ‘holly’ + worth ‘enclosure’. The surname, which was taken to Ireland in the 17th century, has developed a variant with an unexplained medial -s- not noted in any of the placename forms.

Americanized form of some similar (like-sounding) Jewish name.
