On the Road: Highways and History in Bedford County, Pennsylvania
Scott D. Heberling (au); William M. Hunter (au)
Rural Bedford County -- a corner of south-central PA renowned for its natural beauty, but considered to be “off the beaten track” -- has actually played an important role in events that have shaped the history of PA. For over 9,000 years, a succession of east-west transportation routes have crossed central Bedford County. In the Snake Spring Valley, between Bedford & Everett -- all of these routes are clustered together, with each road built on the remains of those that came before. These include native trails, the PA Road (1788) & Gen. John Forbes’ earlier mil. road (1758), the Raystown Path, Burd’s Road, the Chambersburg & Bedford Turnpike, the Lincoln Highway, US 30, & the PA Turnpike. Here are some of these fascinating stories.
