National Park Service, Centennial One Object Exhibit

This multipurpose tool was recovered from the California National Historic Trail south of Pinnacle Pass in the 1960s and donated to the reserve in 2010 by the collector. This object shows the ingenuity of emigrants; a creative emigrant on the California Trail (1843-1882) altered an iron railroad spike and fashioned a multipurpose tool. The California Trail Period is the reserve's period of primary significance.
