Visit the site where the Golden Spike was struck completing construction on the Transcontinental Railroad. Construction of the Central Pacific Railroad and Union Pacific Railroad met at Promontory Summit, about an hour outside of Ogden on May 10, 1869. The railroad network made traveling across the country easier and greatly improved the process of transporting freight. In the 20th century, Ogden’s logo read, “You can’t get anywhere without coming to Ogden.” Park Ranger David Kilton shows us the exact spot where the two rail lines met and talks about the impact.
