Tie-hacking Industry in the Uinta Mountains, 1867-1938
Please note, this event has expired.
Between 1867 and 1938, thousands of men and women from around the world toiled in the timber-rich Uinta Mountains in northeastern Utah cutting ties for the growing transcontinental railroad systems. “Tie-hacking” became an enduring and stable industry because each mile of railroad required between 2,300 and 3,000 crossties. There was also a need for continued track maintenance and tie replacement on existing lines.
