The Promontory Point Name
On May 10th, 1869 at Promontory Point, Utah the Union Pacific’s No. 119 and the Central Pacific’s Jupiter trains touched to complete the first transcontinental railroad in the United States. The merger of these two railroads was significant as it bridged East with West, a monumental accomplishment. The driving of the famed “Golden Spike”, which signified the completion of the merger, united our country into the 20th century.
