An act of the General Assembly passed February 25, 1850, approved construction of a turnpike from a point on the Staunton and Parkersburg road, near Huttonsville, by way of Conrad's in Randolph County, to Marlin's Bottom, in Pocahontas County, under the direction of the Board of Public Works. November 23, 1852, the Board of Public Works authorized a change in the location from the west to the east side of the house of Ely Butcher and Ely B. Butcher in Randolph County, after paying all costs and damages to the Butchers. The General Assembly approved an additional $8,000 in order to extend the road from Marlin's Bottom to Huntersville, and to erect a bridge over the Greenbrier River at Marlin's Bottom, February 28, 1853.
