Golden Spike National Historic Site

On May 10, 1896, officials of the Union and Central Pacific Railroads joined their rails at Promontory Summit. Today, the Golden Spike National Historic Site preserves the history of uniting a nation.see more »

Golden Spike

On the site where the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads met in 1869, Golden Spike is the scene of an annual re-enactment each May marking the anniversary of the original ceremony, which completed the nation's first transcontinental railroad. An annual Railroader's Festival is also held each August. Working replicas of the 1869 steam locomotives, Jupiter and 119, are in operation from May-October. There are two auto tours and an easy 1.5 mile (2.4 km) trail called the Big Fill Walk. The visitor center is open year-round with slide programs, films, and museum exhibits. The historic site is located 32 miles northwest of Brigham City via Hwys 13 and 83.
