The whole state of Utah is celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad this year. You can learn about the history of the transcontinental railroad here. Then, join in the fun around the state.
At the Tooele Valley Museum, we have an exhibit about the railroad and Tooele. We are kicked off the exhibit with a family-friendly event that celebrates local history. Almost 700 people came out to celebrate with us. A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers and city employees that made the event a success!
