An Original Section Of The Old Cumberland Road


Recommended Posts


I've got the Historic Topos in my places but I don't see anyway to choose a specific date.






No can do....as regards choosing different dates. You are stuck with the USGS topo maps they scanned. Sometimes that is more than one, but if I recall, the area we are discussing has only one scanned, and it was from the late 1800's. None the less, it might shed some light on the road section you discovered.


Incidentally, there is another site that provides lots of historic maps with overlays which you have probably already used:






Keep the Show on the Road!

On Friday, I drove the section of Braddock Road that Steve's talking about here. I found one culvert but didn't seriously look for the other or the road section. Some comments and a picture similar to the one Steve posted is here. The coordinates I got for this culvert are: N 39 38.411 W 78 49.098.


I had no idea I'd be in the area until Thursday afternoon. I did make an 11th hour attempt to reach Steve but it just wasn't going to happen this trip.
