Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly passed February 18, 1850 approved incorporation of the Hedgesville and Potomac Turnpike Company to construct a macadamized turnpike road from Hedgesville in Berkeley County to some convenient point on the Martinsburg and Potomac Turnpike, at or near Falling Water mill. Capital stock was set at $10,000. An amendment passed March 7, 1851, authorized extension of the road from Hedgesville up Back Creek Valley and dispensed with the requirement to pave or cap the road except where necessary. Capital was increased March 26, 1853 by $6,000 to construct a bridge across Back Creek, and extend the road to Fredericksburg.
