Great Wagon Road
The gray line in the picture to the left is the path of the Philadelphia Great Wagon Road. It is over this road that tens-of-thousands of Pennsylvania Germans travelled (as well as Scotch-Irish) to settle the western Maryland, central Virginia, and central Carolinas' area.  The road stretched from Philadelphia to Augusta, GA. Some of the historic towns that developed along this road include: Lancaster, PA, Conestoga, PA, York, PA, Gettysburg, PA, Hagerstown, MD, Winchester, VA, Staunton, VA, Lexington, VA, Roanoke, VA, Bethania, NC Bethabara, NC, Salem, NC, Salisbury, NC, Charlotte, NC, Rock Hill, SC, and Newberry, SC.

This same trail was used by the Indians and was known as Great Warrior's Path.

Today, this is where Interstate Highways 76, 81 and 77 are located.
