The Spike at 150: Myths and Realities

This exclusive exhibition explores the creation of the Transcontinental Railroad and the myths surrounding it.

This exhibition, including photographs, artifacts, and original research, explores the creation of the Transcontinental Railroad and the myths surrounding it.  Is there really a mass grave of Chinese workers in the Brigham City Cemetery? Did competing works blow each other up as they approached Promontory? What was Utah’s role in the work?
