Our “Hall of Fame” exhibit at the Golden Spike Tower highlights some of the most influential and important people not only of Bailey Yard and Union Pacific, but of North Platte as well. The display includes six people who are among some of the most important to our town’s history. It also includes personal artifacts that once belonged to our “inductees” that helped to create the history of Bailey Yard, Union Pacific, and of North Platte.

The exhibit has now been created online, so don’t worry, even if you can’t visit us in-person, you can still learn about the people who are important to our history even today.
