This was so cool! It happened on the 10th of May, 1869! The place where the Union Pacific and the Eastern Pacific railways came together! I have lived in Box Elder County for nearly 11 years and yesterday was the first time I have ever been to this place! It is only 30 minutes from our home. I took only one child with me while the others were in school. Probably for the best. I do not know how I could have kept my boys from being all over those trains! My oldest son was in the high school band and they were invited to go play. We went to go watch him. So many people were dressed up! If Mattie and I go next year… we are TOTALLY dressing up!!….because I am a costume freak!! 🙂 Styles of the 1860s….. Here we come!
