NPS Transcontinental Railroad Listening Sessions

  • June 17, 2024
  • 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
  • Online

The National Park Service (NPS) invites members of the public with a connection to the Transcontinental Railroad—including Native Americans and descendant communities of Chinese, LDS, Irish, and African American railroad workers—to share their perspectives and engage in discussion with the National Park Service.

Constructed between 1863 and 1869, the Transcontinental Railroad stretches for 1,776 miles from Sacramento, California, to Council Bluffs, Iowa. The railroad connected, displaced, created, and remade countless communities in its path, yet their diverse perspectives have long gone unrecognized. Through a new Transcontinental Railroad program, the National Park Service has an opportunity to preserve and share histories vital to the national significance of this route and critical to public understanding of U.S. History.
