An act of the General Assembly approved March 15, 1849 incorporated the Buckhannon and Little Kanawha Turnpike Company for the purpose of constructing a turnpike from Buckhannon in Lewis County by way of Haymond's Mills in Brayton County, to some point on the road from Weston to Sutton, also in Brayton County. An act of the General Assembly approved March 18, 1853, altered the route, omitting Haymond's Mills in favor of a more direct route from Buckhannon, now in Upshur County, direct to a convenient point on the Weston and Gauley Bridge Turnpike. Samuel T. Talbert was president of the company.
