Memorial to the completion of the Transcontinental Telephone Line Wendover, Utah

                                     The original telephone poll on the border

For a small town West Wendover and Wendover, Utah, have a significant amount of history. On this blog I have posts on the Wendover Airbase, California Trail and Pony Express. (The Pony Express didn't come through town but 50 miles to south). This post is dedicated to an overlooked memorial near the Montego Casino commemorating the completion of the first Transcontinental Telephone Line in 1914.
