The First Primary Children’s Hospital

I remember as a little guy while attending Primary that once a year we would have a Primary Children Hospital fund raiser. All of the activities in the cultural hall were 1 penny. It’s the only primary event that I really looked forward to, only because I didn’t have to sit still and sing. I had no idea what the hospital was all about, I only went with the intention of spending a fist full of pennies on fun. The current Primary Children Hospital sits high on the east bench close to the University of Utah overlooking the city. When was the first Children’s Hospital established?
a.                  1843 in Nauvoo
b.                  1922 in Salt Lake City
c.                   1836 in Far West, Missouri
d.                  1877 in Salt Lake City
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  They would defend themselves
Fall of 1833:
In addition, Church leaders ended their policy of passive resistance and counseled the Saints to arm themselves for the defense of their families and homes. A delegation to Clay County purchased power and lead, and Church officials announced on October 20 their intent to defend themselves against any physical attack.
