100 years ago, in October of 1916, Utah's State Capitol was dedicated. Students from across the state were invited to tour the Capitol to take part in the Centennial Celebration. Salem Elementary fourth and fifth-graders accepted the invitation and made their way to Salt Lake City.
As arriving in Salt Lake City, the bus turned the corner to approach the building. Students were in awe with the magnificent view before them, the State Capitol. Excitement then filled the bus and students were anxious to begin their tour.
