The Dubbs Bridge is important in local history. It is a fine example of a small-scale, stone bridge erected in association with expanding highway improvements in rural Pennsylvania in the nineteenth century. It is also a part of the National Register-eligible Dubbs-Reith Historic District., which is significant for its excellent examples of nineteenth-century Pennsylvania German architecture, and for its contribution to the agricultural development of the area. The Dubbs family, for which the bridge is named, dominated the local scene from 1734 through the early twentieth century. The Dubbs Bridge is a significant element in both the district and the surrounding landscape.
