Strasburg Home Town Days

Welcome to Strasburg Home Town Days-a celebration to commemorate the joining of the first continuous railroad in the United States. It was at 3:00 p.m. on August 15, 1870 the Kansas Pacific and Denver Pacific Railroads met just east of Strasburg. There was not a big celebration - the American flag and a keg of whiskey sat at the center of the the last 10 1/4 miles of track to be laid. The first crew from either the east or the west to reach the center was the winner. The east team reached the center point and continued on to meet the west team. When the last spike was driven, a new record for laying track was set.
