Utah’s desert sands have buried incredible stories – now it’s time to uncover what has been lost.

Hustling and bustling to starkly quiet, the life of one of Utah’s largest railroad towns of the 1870s-1890s remains part of the historical and archaeological record.

Archaeologists with the Utah State Historic Preservation Office and the Bureau of Land Management partnered with the Chinese Railroad Workers’ Descendants Association to complete two seasons of fieldwork at the town of Terrace, home to Utah’s third largest Chinatown in 1870. Though ravaged by time and vandals, the archaeological heritage of this site is rich and helping connect living peoples to this past experience. In honor of International Archaeology Day, this presentation will honor of the voices of those past residents of Terrace through the Chinese descendant community, archaeological discoveries, and work of numerous volunteers.
