Biographical or historical data
This company was incorporated by an act of the General Assembly approved April 3, 1838, for the purpose of constructing a turnpike from the Cacapon Bridge on the Northwestern Turnpike in Hampshire County to some point on the North Branch of the Potomac near Cumberland, Maryland. The General Assembly voted to extend the road from Cumberland to the National Turnpike or Cumberland Road in Maryland (with the assent of Maryland) on April 9, 1839. The General Assembly agreed to increase capital March 20, 1847 in order to construct a bridge across the North Branch of the Potomac where the river is crossed by the road. With the death of C. Heiskell, President, charges of mismanagement were resolved and Jacob Grace was appointed as the new president.
