1911 · The Salt Lake Airport

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.

1912 · The Girl Scouts

Like the Boy Scouts of America, The Girl Scouts is a youth organization for girls in the United States. Its purpose is to prepare girls to empower themselves and by acquiring practical skills.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of several places so called in Derbyshire, Dorset, Lancashire, or Roxburghshire, from Old English castel ‘castle’ + tūn ‘settlement, farmstead’. Castledon in Wickford (Essex) and Castleton in Danby (North Yorkshire) seem to be late names and therefore not likely sources, and there is no evidence for derivation from Castleton in Hundleton (Pembrokeshire) or Castleton in Saint Athan (Glamorgan).
