1927 · Land Covered in Dinosaur Fossils

Age 2

The quarry was originally found by sheepherders and cattlemen as they drove their animals through the area. The Department of Geology at the University of Utah soon visited the area and found 800 fossils of a variety of Dinosaurs from the Jurassic Era. Because of the proximity of the site to Cleveland, Utah, and because most of the expeditions were financed by Malcolm Lloyd, the site was later known as the Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry. In later years, Princeton college spent three summers at the site. They collected a total of 1,200 bones, part of which were sent back to the school and mounted to complete a full skeleton of an Allosaurus, Utah’s State Fossil. Over the years, excavations led to the collection of more than 12,000 fossils from the quarry. It was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1965.
1928 · The Tower Theater

Age 3

The Tower Theatre is a historic film theater operated by the Salt Lake Film Society. The theater presents independent films and is a venue for the Sundance Film Festival. It also presents classic films on occasional weekends and hosts a movie-rental library for those that want to expand their cinematic knowledge.
1949 · KSL

Age 24

The station first aired on June 1, operating out of the Union Pacific Building. It was owned by the Deseret News but originally operated as an affiliate of CBS. A few months after the first broadcast, KSL moved its operations to the Broadcast House. In 1952, a 370-foot transmission tower was constructed on Farnsworth Peak to improve the station's signal coverage along the Wasatch Front. KSL also began to build a massive translator network that stretches across five states and claims the largest signal coverage of any station in the United States. KSL operated as a division of the Deseret News until Bonneville International was formed. Soon afterward, channel 5 began broadcasting its programming in color. In 1984, the station moved its Broadcast House facilities to the Triad Center and on September 10, 1995, KSL-TV became an NBC affiliate. During the 2002 Winter Olympics, KSL-TV was very influential in bringing coverage and technology to NBC.
