Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly passed March 24, 1848, revived the act of March 24, 1838, and provided for construction of a macadamized turnpike road from Martinsburg in Berkeley County, to Winchester, in Frederick County. The Company was authorized in January, 1849, to divide the road into two sections, the first, from Martinsburg to Bunker's Hill, or to the Frederick County line, and the second, from that point to Winchester. Capital stock was reduced from $60,000 to $45,000, with the Board of Public Works subscribing to $12,000. The name of the company was changed to the Winchester and Martinsburg Turnpike Company in the session of the General Assembly from 1883-1884.
