Stone S bridge on National Road photograph
Description: Stone S Bridge on National Road (US 40) in Guernsey County. The National Road was one of the first paved (compacted gravel) roads to cross the Appalachian Mountains. Construction began in Cumberland, Maryland in 1815, and contractors completed the road to Wheeling, Virginia (modern-day West Virginia), in 1817. Eventually, the federal government extended the road to near St. Louis, Missouri. The National Road was constructed in Guernsey County, Ohio in 1828, and a few of the stone bridges are still used today. View on Ohio Memory.
