Summary

Significance: The Stanislaus River Bridge, also known as Bridge Number A-1096.719, determined eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places in 1994, represents a rare extant truss bridge in California's San Joaquin Valley. The bridge has a direct historical link to and helped facilitate improvements to, and expansion of, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway [hereinafter Santa Fe] in the San Joaquin Valley. These improvements and expansions helped to further break the monopoly long held by the Southern Pacific Railroad, fostering widespread settlement and agricultural development in this Valley in the first two decades of the 20th century.
