An act of the General Assembly passed February 27, 1854, approved incorporation of the Salem Station and Rappahannock Turnpike Company, to construct a macadamized road from the Salem Station on the Manassas Gap Railroad, through the town of Salem in Fauquier County, then by the most convenient route to Gaine's Crossroads in Rappahannock County. Joint capital stock was fixed at $30,000, for the turnpike which was to be built in two equal sections, the Salem section, and the Rappahannock section. The Board of Public Works was authorized to subscribe to $18,000. An act passed March 31, 1858, required the Company to macadamize only a portion of th road.
