Party Like It’s 1869

One of the most iconic and life-altering events in America’s history – the completion of the transcontinental railroad – happened in Utah on May 10, 1869. Spike 150 is the umbrella organization for all those celebrating the 150-year anniversary of the Golden Spike ceremony in Utah. Through a series of activities and events, the Spike 150 initiative aims to inspire, educate, and reflect on the transcontinental railroad legacy as it unifies Utahns to see that great things are possible with vision, hard work, dedication, innovation, and collaboration.
