The Deseret Industries Grand Opening

When did the first Deseret Industries open?
a.                  1901
b.                  1938
c.                   1951
d.                  1925
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Bishop’s wards
By 1849 Salt Lake City had been divided into 19 wards. What is interesting is that they weren’t called just “wards” the way we call them today, but rather “bishop’s wards.”
