How Railroads Changed American Culture at the Museum of Anthropology
144 years ago, officials of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific Railroads met at the Golden Spike site 32 miles northwest of Brigham City to drive four symbolic spikes which marked the completion of the first American transcontinental railroad. An illustrated lecture at 1 p.m. at USU's Museum of Antropology explores how railroads changed American culture in the 19th century, and how many communities around the country are now transforming old railways. Throughout the day, kids can design their own trains. The museum is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and admission is always FREE!
