Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly passed February 21, 1829, approved incorporation of the Jackson's River Turnpike Company, to construct a turnpike road from Warm Springs in Bath County, by way of Hot Springs, to intersect the Kanawha Turnpike at Callaghan's. Joint capital stock was set at $20,000 with the Board of Public Works authorized to subscribe to 2/5 or $8,000. February 24, 1842, the Assembly authorized the appointment of a superintendent selected by the Company. The General Assembly advised the Board to settle its account with the Company April 1, 1848, because of debts accumulated when bridges were replaced that had been carried away by a freshet in July 1842. April 7, 1858, the Board of Public Works was authorized to appoint a superintendent, being the principal stockholder. On January 13, 1877, the General Assembly authorized the Board of Public Works to sell the state's interest in the turnpike, as the stock was completely unproductive.
