A promontory is a prominent mass of land which overlooks lower land or a body of water.

The first transcontinental railroad in North America met at Promontory, Utah, near Promontory Summit, north of the Great Salt Lake.

A different place called Promontory Point, Utah is on Promontory Point, a cape jutting out into the Great Salt Lake. (Note that point is in the name.)
