Completion of the world's first trans-continental railroad was celebrated May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit, Utah. Here, the "last spike" was driven, joining the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads.
Golden Spike National Historic Site lies in the northern reaches of the Great Basin Desert of Utah and ranges from 4,300 to 4,900 feet above sea level. Some 690 miles east of Sacramento, California, and 1,087 miles west of Omaha, Nebraska, its paramount purpose is to illustrate the social, economic, and political impact of the trans-continental railroad on the growth and westward development of the United States.
