Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly passed March 17, 1849, authorized incorporation of the Logan, Raleigh, and Monroe Turnpike Company, with capital stock set at $30,000. The road was to begin at some point on Sandy River, not lower than the mouth of Marrowbone Creek in Logan County, nor higher than the mouth of Pond Creek, by way of Logan Courthouse, to intersect the Giles, Fayette, and Kanawha Turnpike at the town of Beckley in Fayette County. The company was granted an additional two years to begin construction on March 24, 1851, and the counties of Logan, Wyoming & Raleigh were empowered to subscribe to capital stock. Stock was increased by $16,000, March 16, 1853, to extend the road from the terminus at Raleigh courthouse by way of Richmond's falls on New River to the Blue Sulphur Springs in Greenbrier County.
