Hopkins partnered with Leland Stanford, Collis Potter Huntington and Charles Crocker to form the Central Pacific Railroad Company on June 27, 1861. The Big Four made the dream of a trans-Sierra Nevada railroad a reality with the joining of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific rails at Promontory Point, Utah, on May 10, 1869. Mark Hopkins is buried in the Sacramento City Cemetery.
