The Golden Spikes turns One Hundred And Fifty

The Villager - May 29, 2019

As soon as I heard it was being planned, I dreamed about touching a moment in history by being present at the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the placing of the Golden Spike at Promontory Summit, Utah, SPIKE150. I was able to be there to witness a very special event. It was announced that the Golden Spike National Historical Site is now the Golden Spike National Historical Park. I was representing the historically minded
Villager newspaper, Arapahoe Co. CO, with my cousins Fred and Henry Ames from MA and my friend Wallie Robinson, another historian from CO.
