Perspectives on the Transcontinental Railroad Listening Session

The National Park Service is hosting a virtual listening session to hear perspectives on the Transcontinental Railroad. 

 Through a new Transcontinental Railroad program, the National Park Service (NPS) has an opportunity to preserve and share histories vital to the national significance of this route and critical to public’s understanding of U.S. History. The National Park Service 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 participate in a listening session to share their perspectives. 

If you are unable to participate in the listening session on May 6th but would still like to share your thoughts on the history and the legacy of the Transcontinental Railroad, contact the Project Manager for the Transcontinental Railroad Foundation Document Julie Bell via email at julie_a_bell@nps.gov or via phone at 720-987-0282.
