One of the defining moments in American history happened 150 years ago. In Utah. The completion of the transcontinental railroad joined the two coasts of the country, setting the stage for future history. The Utah Museum of Fine Arts celebrates the moment with an exhibit “The Race to Promontory” until May 26. The Utah State Capitol has another exhibit—including the Golden Spike—on display until May 12, 2019.
