The Kaysville Fruit Heights Museum of History and Art needs your help to find and preserve records about the Kaysville Brass Band's involvement in the completion of the transcontinental railroad. We are looking for your family member journals, photographs, or letters describing their experiences of the Golden Spike Ceremony from 1869.
Your family member's histories will document a story that has never been told and is an important part of Kaysville's heritage. Please post a comment of any information you might have and you will be contacted by a member of the museum's acquisition committee.

The Kaysville City Council unanimously passed a resolution to deed precious community artifacts to the Kaysville-Fruit Heights Museum. Now we can conserve and protect those pieces of history.
Mayor Katie Witt put the matter on the agenda, Councilman Dave Adams made the motion, and Councilwoman Michelle Barber provided the second. Every councilperson present voted in favor.
