The Historic National Road

Hundreds of years ago the easiest ways for new settlers to cross the Appalachian Mountains going west were on the dirt and cobblestone-covered National Road. New settlers drove horse-drawn Conestoga wagons that carried building materials and supplies. Families rode stagecoaches and carriages that stopped frequently along the way to take advantage of the friendly towns on their way to the west.

The National Road was Americas first federally funded highway. The National Road project took four decades of hard labor to complete. The road ran from Baltimore all the way through to Vandalia, Illinois. It began in 1806 to open trade and communication with the growing frontier in the Ohio River Valley.
