Biographical or historical data
By an act of the General Assembly passed February 24, 1851, the stockholders who subscribed to the increased capital stock of the Hampshire and Morgan Turnpike Company, were authorized to form a new, separate company called the North Frederick Turnpike Company, with joint capital stock in the amount of $13,000. The road was to branch off from the Hampshire and Morgan Turnpike, from a point at or near the house of Frederick B. Jenkins in Hampshire County, through the town of Gainesborough to the town of Winchester. The company was also given approval to plank or macadamize the road from Winchester to the Little North Mountain.
