Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly, passed January 29, 1810, approved incorporation of the Snicker's Gap Turnpike Company, to construct a road from Snicker's Gap in the Blue Ridge, to the Shenandoah River, towards Winchester, at the western extremity of the Little River Turnpike Road. Funding was increased and delays granted in 1822, 1823, 1824 and 1825. February 23, 1826, the company was given an additional year to complete the road, and authorized to raise by lottery the sum of $50,000 to finance a bridge across Goose Creek (which had been lost in high water), and to extend the termination of the road to Winchester.
