Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly, passed March 27, 1848, approved incorporation of the Sperryville and Rappahannock Turnpike Company, to construct a turnpike road from Sperryville, in Rappahannock County, to some point at or near the head of canal navigation on the Rappahannock River. Capital stock was fixed at $50,000 with the Board of Public Works authorized to subscribe to $30,000. Authorization to construct the road of plank was granted March 16, 1850, and a time extention was approved, giving two years to commence and ten years to complete the road. An increase of $30,000 was granted February 19, 1851, to complete the road to the river, erect a bridge over the river, and extend the road to Warrenton, or to any point on the Warrenton and Rappahannock Turnpike. On March 6, 1874, the Board of Public Works was authorized to sell at public auction all the rights, title, interest and franchise, including state's interest, of the road.
