These bridges are part of the historic Thomas Subdivision of the Western Maryland Railroad, constructed in the late 1870s along the North Branch of the Potomac River. Kitzmiller was a bustling town along the railroad and the river. The Western Maryland operated steam engine along the Thomas subdivision until the early 1950s. In the 1970s, the rail line was relocated to allow construction of the Jennings Randolph reservoir.
