Golden Spike National Hist. Site Replica Benchmark Paperweight
A benchmark is a permanent mark established at a known elevation that is used as the basis for measuring the elevation of other topographical points in a given area. Benchmarks are used by land surveyors, engineers, map makers, and other professionals who need precise information about their location. They also look pretty cool! That’s why we’ve produced a cast metal replica of the one found at Golden Spike National Historic Site, which marks the place where the last spike completed the first transcontinental railroad-4,905 feet above sea level.
