130 years ago today - May 28, 1892 (Saturday)

In the U.S. House of Representatives it was proposed that the so-called Industrial Christian Home of Utah" (which was founded some years previously as a refuge for Mormon wives who abandoned polygamy) be summarily disposed of by Congress, by granting the entire premises to the Territory as a site for a Territorial school for deaf and dumb. The proposition, however, was not sustained.

[Jenson, Andrew, Church Chronology]
