HUNTINGTON, COLLIS P.
COLLIS P. HUNTINGTON (1821-1900). Huntington was one of the most important railroad builders in American history. Arriving in California as a successful New York merchant in 1849, Huntington soon began building one of the great American railway fortunes. In 1860, he was approached by Theodore Judah with a plan to build a railroad across the Sierra Nevada mountains as part of a trans-continental railroad project. The development of Judah's plan brought together the talents of Huntington, Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker and Mark Hopkins, known as "The Big Four." This combination of successful California businessmen led to the eventual completion of the Central Pacific Railroad, culminating in its connection with the Union Pacific at Promontory Point, Utah in May of 1869.
