1912 · The Girl Scouts

Age 1

1912 · The Capitol Building

Age 1

As time passed, smaller buildings became inadequate to house the local leaders and the territory legislator, so a call for a new permanent capitol building became an item of discussion. Several of people requested that Salt Lake City donate 20 acres of land for the construction of a new Capitol building, but plans were put on hold until Utah gained statehood in 1896. After the new state legislature passed the approval for the building of the Capitol, funding was secured and the search for a site was underway. One of the more popular sites considered was located on Fort Douglas property, but it was decided to construct it on the original 20 acres site now known as Capitol Hill. The Capitol has been renovated multiple times since its original construction, to better stabilize the structure to be able to withstand a 7.3 magnitude earthquake and to demonstrate the history of the state. The Capitol was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
1935 · The FBI is Established

Age 24

The Bureau of Investigation's name was changed to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help citizens know that the Government is helping protect from threats both domestically and abroad.

Name Meaning

English (of Norman origin): of much disputed origin, but probably from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements tal ‘destroy’ + bod ‘message’, ‘tidings’, i.e. ‘messenger of destruction’. In this form the name is also found in France, taken there apparently by English immigrants; the usual French form is Talbert .
