Wash out on West Auto Tour
In August 2014 Golden Spike National Historic Site had a large amount of rain fall in a short period of time. This rainfall caused flooding which washed out a portion of the historic grade. This damage has resulted in early closure of the West Auto Tour.
Golden Spike National Historic Site will commemorate the 145th anniversary by presenting a special ceremony with guest speakers, honoring those that lost their lives while building the transcontinental railroad, 2 re-enactment ceremonies, live music, and more. Check back later for more information about the event. More
