Sierra Highway crosses the railroad tracks just south of town. It stays on the east side of the tracks until just past Palmdale. Note the milepost for route 14.

Harold was a town founded as a railroad watering stop. Nothing remains of the telegraph station that was once here. This section of Sierra Highway was originally paved in 1921 and straightened in 1934. The freeway bypassed it in 1966.
