Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 28, 1964):
East Broad Top Railroad is a rare surviving example of the once common small gauge railroad companies that served the mining and lumbering industries throughout the nation from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Built in 1871 primarily to transport coal, the East Broad Top Railroad today is a privately operated tourist attraction. It retains much of the original rolling stock, the station buildings and a rail yard complete with machine and car shops, blacksmith shop, foundry, turntable and roundhouse.
