    1939 · Hill Air Force Base
    Age 23
    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.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish and northern English: patronymic from the personal name Ander(s), a northern Middle English form of Andrew , + son ‘son’. The frequency of the surname in Scotland is attributable, at least in part, to the fact that Saint Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, so the personal name has long enjoyed great popularity there. Legend has it that the saint's relics were taken to Scotland in the 4th century by a certain Saint Regulus. In North America, this surname has absorbed many cognate or like-sounding surnames in other languages, notably Scandinavian (see 3 and 4 below), but also Ukrainian Andreychenko etc.German: patronymic from the personal name Anders , hence a cognate of 1 above.Americanized form (and a less common Swedish variant) of Swedish Andersson , a cognate of 1 above.
