Owner Comments:

In the United States in 1806/ The National Road was the first United States federal highway. Construction of the turnpike was authorized on March 29, 1806, and began in 1811 at Cumberland, Maryland. The National Road was the first modern road built since the Roman times. An engineer by the name of John Loudon McAdam, designed a new road surfacing material known as Macadam and this was the first road in North America to use the system.
