The last trip Warren G. Harding made as President of the United States was to the interior of Alaska to dirve the Golden Spike commemorating the line of the Alaska Railroad, which joined Alaska's two major cities, Fairbanks and Anchorage, July 15, 1923. The spike was at the end of 702-foot Myers Memorial Bridge, at Milepost 413.7. Shortly after he returned to Washington, President Harding died suddenly of a heart attack on August 2, 1923.
