Saves: 10
Check-ins: 3
Railroads are important in the rise of American industry, and Golden Spike at Promontory Summit in Brigham City is witness to one of the greatest events in railroad history. On May 10, 1869, the first Transcontinental Railroad was completed, and Promontory Summit is where the Central Pacific and Union Pacific Railroads met. The historical site is named Golden Spike, which was the ceremonial spike which was driven into the point where the two railroads joined.
