Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly passed March 28, 1851 approved incorporation of the Newark Turnpike Company to construct a road from the Wirt County Courthouse, through the town of Newark, to intersect the Parkersburg and Staunton road at or near the mouth of Hughes' River. Joint capital stock was limited to $6,000, with the Board of Public Works subscribing to $3,600. Cost was not to exceed $400 per mile. An increase of $2,500 was granted March 31, 1860, in order to extend the road from its present terminus, near the mouth of Hughes' River in Wirt County, to the Northwestern Virginia Railroad at or near Thompson Devaughn's storehouse, in Wood County.
