Golden Spike National Historic Site

Found along Interstate 84, the Golden Spike National Historic Site is located in northern Utah – just north of Salt Lake City. This 2,735-acre site, located at Promontory Summit north of Brigham City and Ogden, is where the first United States Transcontinental Railroad was completed in 1869.

The spot where the west coast's Central Pacific Railroad joined the east's Union Pacific Railroad is marked with an iconin golden spike. After the golden spike was in the ground, the Union Pacific engine No. 119 nearly touched the Central Pacific engine Jupiter. This monumental location was declared a National Historic Site in 1957.

While at the site, join an auto tour of the Promontory Summit, or stroll through the visitor center for historical artifacts – as well as the famous Champagne Photo.

Tour the engine house for replicas of both engines, or visit between early May and Columbus Day to catch reenactments of the Golden Spike Ceremony – plus steam demonstrations from engines No. 119 and Jupiter.
