In 1900, the Central Pacific Railroad decided to move the tracks out of Wadsworth, Nevada, and run them closer to the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The land for the new terminal and the rail yards is where Sparks is located today. It took four years to fill the swamp created by the Truckee River. By 1904, the job was completed and Sparks became the busiest terminal between Utah and California. You can see artifacts and learn the history of Sparks at the museum located three blocks from John Ascuaga's Nugget.
