Weld the Past to the Present to Enrich the Future

This monument is a grateful tribute to the builders of America’s first transcontinental railroad completed May 10, 1869, when the Golden Spike was driven at Promontory, Utah, 53 miles northwest of Ogden.

Dedicated May 10, 1951, to honor those pioneers, who builded better than they knew, and to encourage for all time the same joy of doing.

This is Utah Pioneer Trails and Landmarks Association historic marker #120, erected along with the Union Pacific Railroad Company Southern Pacific Company, the Golden Spike Celebration Committee of Ogden and later adopted by the Sons of Utah Pioneers.


Located at Union Station at 2501 Wall Avenue in Ogden, Utah on a monument with D.U.P. Historic Marker #416 “Ogden City Wall.”

Kiwanis’ plaque:
On September 11, 2002 The Kiwanis Club of Ogden donated this flag pole in remembrance of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on America.
