Power of Place

2018 Public Education Series

As a benefit of membership, Preservation Utah is hosting a series of public education events, featuring historic places with experts sharing the stories that make historic places relevant to us all. Come with us throughout 2018 during our Power of Place series to hear the stories, meet the people, and see the historic places that are significant to telling Utah's full history.


Transcontinental Railroad Grade Tour

As we approach the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad (May 9, 2019), the Preservation Utah and its partners – Utah Division of State History and Bureau of Land Management – would like to invite the public to join cultural resource staff and historians on a guided tour of some important locations in western Box Elder County. Tour will stop at the important former railroad towns of Kelton and Terrace, along with some important engineering feats such as the Dove Creek Fill and Peplin Cut. The grade was used from its completion in 1869 to 1904 when the Lucin Cutoff across the Great Salt Lake was completed.


This tour has been postponed until spring of 2019.

Please check back in the spring for details.
