1917 · Camp Merritt is Activated

Age 1

Camp Merritt was a military base activated for use in World War II. It was located in Bergen County, New Jersey; the location was originally called Camp Tenafly. Construction started on August 20, 1917 and was officially authorized on December 20 of that same year. The location was considered ideal due to how easily soldiers could be transported; they could march just one hour to Alpine Landing and board a ferryboat.
1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 18

Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963. 
1937 · Los Angeles California Temple

Age 21

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the Los Angeles California Temple on March 6, 1937.
