As one of the most expansive and lush states in the country, California has always loomed large in the consciousness of the American West. In the late 1800’s this expansion was no longer by horse and wagon and the steam engine was charging forward.
Our enhanced map of the proposed S.O. Houghton and Southern Pacific Railroad company is a rare glimpse into the history and lore of the American West. Cross country transit and trade was to be made possible with this agreement and the construction of these railways. This map detailed the topography, existing rail-lines, and proposed new railways. This proposed new system of railroads was considered one of the greatest undertakings of its time and upon completion represented a true American feat of engineering.
The Transcontinental Railroad route can be seen crossing present day Nevada and where it navigates across the western Sierra Nevada mountains at the Donner Pass. This museum quality archival print is perfect for any lover of the American West and will transport you to another time. Our enhancements allow this aesthetically compelling piece to augment any office, classroom, or home. An ideal gift for the historian in your life.
