Fine early plan of Terrace, Utah, published by the Central Pacific Railroad.

The map shows the railroad lines, Central Pacific Station, Hotel, Secretary's House, and the several blocks in the center of town.

Terrace, Utah is located in the Great Salt Lake Desert in west-central Box Elder County, Utah, United States. Terrace was established in 1869 as a Central Pacific Railroad "division point" (operations base), on the route of the First Transcontinental Railroad.

In 1904 the Southern Pacific Railroad, successor to the Central Pacific, completed the Lucin Cutoff across the Great Salt Lake. The new route bypassed Terrace, and the tracks through town became a little-used branchline. The railroad closed its facilities at Terrace, moving the division point to Montello, Nevada. The railroad line through Terrace was finally abandoned in 1942. Many of Terrace's houses and buildings were moved to Montello, and some remain there today.

This is almost certainly one of the few surviving maps of the town of Terrace.
