Significance: The seven Promontory Branch railroad trestles were originally part of the first transcontinental railroad route constructed across the United States. As such they represent important remnants of this railroad which was instrumental in joining the nation together. They are also good examples of a class of small utilitarian wooden trestles constructed throughout the country during the latter half of the 19th century.
