Golden Spike National Historic Site shares the stories of the people and settings that define the completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad. To allow visitors to relive the Celebration of the Driving of the Last Spike, volunteers portray the dignitaries who were at the ceremony on May 10th, 1869. Reenactments of the celebration are held Saturdays and holidays, starting at 11:00 a.m. and following the 1:00 p.m. Steam Demonstration. Steam locomotive reenactments also occur every day during the summer season.
