Transcontinental Railroad Grade Tour

Sat, Apr 06
  • Presented By: Preservation Utah
  • at: Memorial House
As we approach the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad (May 9, 2019), the Preservation Utah and its partners – Utah Division of State History and Bureau of Land Management – would like to invite the public to join cultural resource staff and historians on a guided tour of some important locations in western Box Elder County. Tour will stop at the important former railroad towns of Kelton and Terrace, along with some important engineering feats such as the Dove Creek Fill and Peplin Cut. The grade was used from its completion in 1869 to 1904 when the Lucin Cutoff across the Great Salt Lake was completed.
