Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly, passed January 19, 1848, approved incorporation of the Thornton's Gap Turnpike Company to construct a macadamized road from Thornton's Gap in Rappahannock County, by Culpeper Courthouse to Kelly's mills. Joint capital stock was fixed at $75,000, with the Board of Public Works authorized to subscribe to $45,000. The road was divided into two sections, one from Thornton's Gap to Culpeper Courthouse, and the other from Culpeper Courthouse to Kelly's mills. In 1850 approval was given to construct the roads totally or in part in plank, and in 1851, capital stock was increased $10,000, with the Board paying $6,000. At the same time, the act providing for the section from Culpeper to Kelly's mills was repealed.
