Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly, passed March 25, 1848, approved incorporation of the Weston and Gauley Bridge Turnpike Company to construct a turnpike road from Weston in Lewis County, by Sutton in Braxton County, and Summersville in Nicholas County, to some point at or near the falls of the Great Kanawha in Fayette County. Joint capital stock was fixed at $30,000, with the Board of Public Works subscribing to $18,000, and the four counties investing proportionally. Capital was increased $15,000 in both 1850 and 1853, the latter for the purpose of bridging the West Fork River, Little Kanawha, and Elk River, and for road improvement.
