The National Road became America’s first federally funded highway. It travels through six states beginning in Maryland and 10 counties in Ohio. The Road entered Ohio from the east in 1825. In Ohio, Licking County has the most miles – 32 miles.
The Road immediately attracted travelers and commerce and opened our state and much of the old Northwest Territory to settlements and access to Ohio products. The National Road has been designated as an All American Road and a National Scenic Byway.
