An act of the General Assembly passed February 2, 1850, directed the Board of Public Works to have constructed a graded road not to exceed 12 ft., suitable for wagons, across the Blue Ridge, at Gravelly Springs Gap from Partlow's shop in Rappahannock County, at the eastern base, to Brown's Mill in Warren County, at the western base. The Board of Public Works was authorized to borrow $1,500 for road construction, and upon completion, the road would be under the control of the court of the two counties for maintenance.
