Notes
Survey number HAER CA-117
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N98, N836).
Building/structure dates: 1870 initial construction
Significance: A variety of themes are represented in the story of Yosemite's roads. The earliest routes were toll trails and roads constructed by private turnpike companies. Some roads in Yosemite Valley were constructed under the auspices of the Yosemite Board of Commissioners or the U.S. Cavalry. Some work, most notably the El Portal Road, was done by the National Park Service Engineering Division, but most of the park roads were reconstructed by the Bureau of Public Roads after 1925. Most of the park roads reflect careful attention to landscape concerns; they were designed not only to carry required traffic loads but also to integrate with their natural settings.
