National historical parks preserve important parts of the nation’s history, like the iconic moment in which railroad workers brought the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads together on May 19, 1869. The Golden Spike National Historical Park commemorates that very event, the completion in 6 1/2 years of the first transcontinental railroad (1,800 miles of hand-built track) in the country. To celebrate the paths less traveled in national historical parks (these places receive far fewer visitors than National Parks), Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered an original illustration in the fashion of vintage poster art and travel art. This retro design and wilderness art is available as a poster, print, canvas, mini canvas, metal sign, notecard, or postcard.
