An act of the General Assembly passed February 4, 1850, authorized construction of a turnpike road from some suitable point in Raleigh County on the Giles, Fayette and Kanawha Turnpike by way of Princeton in Mercer County, Wytheville in Wythe County, and the site selected for the new courthouse in Grayson County, to the North Carolina line, in the direction of Jefferson, in Ashe County, North Carolina. The county courts of Fayette, Giles, Grayson, Mercer and Wythe each appointed a director to serve on a board for the purpose of superintending road construction. The work was divided in sections corresponding to the length or distance the road would cover in each of the counties.
