"In Greek mythology, ""Valhalla"" means place of the Gods. It is also a most apt name for the idyllic Westchester, NY town that is intimately connected to Gate of Heaven Cemetery, a resting place for mortals. Tradition and history live here on the 250 acre pastoral grounds which also incorporate the towns of Hawthorne and Mt. Pleasant. Easily accessible by its own train stop on the Metro North Railroad or by car, Gate of Heaven Cemetery, run by the NY Archdiocese, was formally consecrated on July 14, 1918, by then Archbishop of NY, John Cardinal Farley. Since that time, the cemetery’s hillsides have filled with legend, incorporating a mix of famous and obscure denizens, who have chosen memorials that range from the basic to the grand."

1935 · The FBI is Established

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.
