Located in a mini-park near the Railroad Depot is a historical rail with a monument that reads:

Historical Rail

The first transcontinental railroad that tied the west to the east with bands of steel was completed with the driving of the golden spike at Promontory, Utah, 33 miles west of here May 10, 1869. The railroad was abandoned with the ceremonial pulling of the golden spike August 8, 1942. This is the rail which served in the same place as the original rail held by the golden spike. The other rails were used to help relieve the steel shortage during the second world war.

The Junior Chamber of Commerce of Brigham City secured this rail from the Union Pacific Railroad and presented it to Box Elder County.

Dedicated December 22, 1943 by Governor Herbert B. Maw.
