SALT LAKE'S FIRST RAILROAD 

—THE STORY IN A NUTSHELL 



r«Esi&L«;a@ilir_ 



FOR 22 long years prior to 1870 a steady stream of 
caravans consisting of ox teams, mule teams, horse 
teams, hand carts, pack trains and pony express 
had poured itself into Salt Lake Valley. Across deserts, 
fording streams, climbing mountains, these pilgrims had 
toiled. Hunger, disease, exposure and frequent encounters 
with hostile Indian bands had been their daily lot. Thou- 
sands had died enroute and were buried by the wayside. 

By the spring of 1869 the Union Pacific railroad had 
been completed to Ogden and it was announced that the 
capital of Utah was not to be included in this transcon- 
tinental system. Not to be denied, however, the disap- 
>ointed settlers of these valleys immediately organized a 
c^Jinpany__to build a connecting line of their own. 

On May 7, one week after the driving of the Golden 
Spike at Promontory, ground for this new road — the Utah 
Central — was broken. Capital, materials and labor were 
generously forthcoming to finance and carry through tlie' 
undertaking and the last obstacle to an early completion 
was removed when rails and rolling stock were obtained 
from the Union Pacific. And so, in seven months from 
the very day that the Union Pacific was completed, the 
new Utah Central was ready for operation. 

A mammoth celebration was planned and on January 
10, 1870, the day appointed, 15,000 joyful people assembled. 
It was a festive gathering. Enthusiasm and rejoicing ran 
high. State officials, high church dignitaries, leading busi- 
ness men and military representatives from Camp Douglas 
were guests of the occasion. At 2 p. m. President Brigham 
Young drove the last spike, officially completing the new 
road. / 

"Thus ^nded the celebration of the most important 
event, considered from a commercial standpoint, that has 
ever transpired in Utah Territory," commented the Deseret 
Even ing News of the following day.
