Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly approved March 9, 1847 authorized formation of the Harrisville Turnpike as a corporation to construct a road from a point on the North West Turnpike west of James Martin's and passing through Harrisville to some point on the Staunton and Parkersburg Road, west of Weston. Subscriptions were set at $10,000, with shares at $10. The route was changed the following year, on March 28, 1848, beginning near the head of Bunnell's Run down the valley of the north fork of Hughes' River, and through the town of Harrisville to some other point on the North West Road below Harrisville near to Levi Nutter's. Shares were changed to $50, with the Board of Public Works subscribing to 2/5. The Ritchie County Court was authorized to subscribe to 3/5. March 3, 1851, stock was increased by $3,500 in order to complete the road.
