On June 17, 1914, the first transcontinental telephone line was completed near this point on the border of Nevada and Utah at Wendover. Construction forces of the Bell Telephone Company of Nevada and the Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Company met there, making the last splices in the wires which joined East and West in voice communications for the first time.
