Biographical or historical data
By an act of the General Assembly approved 19 February 1835, the Augusta Springs Turnpike Company was incorporated, to run from Dudley's sawmill in Augusta County, passing the springs and ending at the Warm Springs-Harrisonburg Turnpike. The turnpike was planned to give access to Augusta Springs, "a fashionable and valuable watering place", and provide an approach to rich anthracite coal beds. The Board of Public Works was authorized to subscribe to 2/5 of the capital stock. April 8, 1839 the Augusta Springs Turnpike Company merged with the Warm Springs-Harrisonburg Turnpike Company.
