Golden Spike Anniversary!

Date: May 10, 2019

Start Time: 9:00 am
End Time: 11:00 pm

Celebrating the 150th Driving of the Golden Spike!

Hogle Zoo is joining the festivities surrounding the 150th anniversary of one of the landmark events in America’s history – the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad! The driving of the Golden Spike happened in Utah, making coast-to-coast travel by train possible.

From 9 – 11a you’ll be able to snap a photo in front of the Zoo’s two beautiful C.P.Huntington locomotives situated nose-to-nose, replicating the iconic photo of 1869.

The event is included with Zoo admission or a valid Zoo membership.

Sponsored in part by the SPIKE150 committee.
