Join me at National Pike Days at Wilson Store

Wagon trains have been rolling since 1989 as a part of the Maryland segment of the Washington County National Pike Festival. With its strategic geographical location between the Allegheny Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Washington County played a key role in opening the West to our nation.

In 1797, Baltimore bankers and businessmen were instrumental in extending the Baltimore-National Pike, also known in Washington County as the Bank Road, to Cumberland and became part of the National Pike. In 1806, President Thomas Jefferson signed into law an act authorizing federal funds to build a road from Cumberland, Maryland to Ohio. This act set the stage for federal support of our transportation system, as we know it today.

Many counties in Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio celebrate this 300-mile route with authentic wagon trains and other old-fashioned activities.

 

This event starts at 10AM and expect to be there about then.  I will likely only be able to stay until noon so please come see me if we have yet to talk.
