Box Elder County is known as the land where East met West to bind the United States together: On May 10, 1869, the golden spike that completed the first transcontinental railroad was ceremoniously placed into a laurelwood tie at Promontory in today's Box Elder County. The marriage between the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railways was one of the most significant events in U.S. History. Less than a hundred years later, development of the solid-fuel rocket accelerated America's outerspace exploration. It took hard work, and Box Elder County is proud to be the home of two engineering events that changed the history of this nation.
As we enter the 21st century, Box Elder County continues to advance and grow. Modern businesses and factories bring prosperity, yet progress has not taken away the natural beauty of the land. The pioneers would indeed be proud of the territory they settled, and surprised at the range of recreational and cultural opportunities it now offers.
So take your time and get to know the people and sites that make Box Elder County such a unique and wonderful place. We hope you will enjoy your visit with us.
