Chinese Arch
Chinese Arch was named to honor the 10,000 Chinese workers imported to work on the Central Pacific Railroad. The Central Pacific and the Union Pacific met at Promontory Summit near the northern end of the Great Salt Lake completing the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The site is now called the Golden Spike National Historic Site. There are two auto tours which follow the old railroad grade: the West Auto Tour and East Auto Tour. The Arch is along the East Tour.
