Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly approved February 20, 1830, incorporated the Fincastle and Blue Ridge Turnpike Company to construct a turnpike road from Fincastle in Botetourt County to intersect the Lynchburg and Salem Turnpike at some appropriate point. Stock certificates were limited to $15,000. Should Noffsinger's Gap be selected as the best point to cross the Blue Ridge, the Company was authorized to extend the road from Fincastle to the western extremity of the road. Capital was reduced to $8,000 February 26, 1833, with the Board of Public Works picking up 2/5 of the stock.
