120 years ago today - Apr 10, 1901

The Oregon Shortline Railroad returned to the Church a check for $2,176.20, the amount charged on the freight for the material used in the reconstruction of the Tabernacle organ. This is done by the railroad to show appreciation for the many recitals and courtesies extended by the Church authorities in behalf of tourists traveling over that line and passing through Salt Lake City.
