    Golden Spike National Historic Site is in Box Elder County, Utah. 
The national historic site was authorized by Congress on July 30, 1965. 
Congress charged the Secretary with acquisition of lands `` * * * for 
the purpose of establishing a national historic site commemorating the 
completion of the first transcontinental railroad across the United 
States * * *'' The enabling legislation also states that ``the National 
Park Service * * * shall administer, protect, and develop such historic 
site, subject to the provisions of the Act entitled `An Act to 
establish a National Park Service, and for other purposes' '' approved
