The 2019 Golden Spike Conference celebrates and commemorates the 150th Anniversary of the Completion of the Transcontinental Railroad and will convene some of the nation’s leading experts on Chinese America to educate, celebrate and commemorate the rich history and numerous contributions the Chinese have made to America.

The Golden Spike Conference is centered around the tremendous contributions that Chinese Americans made to the United States amid the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad linking the resources of the West coast with the people and industries of the East coast. Tens of thousands of Chinese workers were recruited to work on the Central Pacific line originating in Sacramento California and ending at Promontory Summit, Utah where it was joined the Union Pacific line by the driving of the Golden Spike.
