Mapping the National Road

Thanks to Google Maps, I’m working on keeping an updated map of posts along the National Road. As I get to travel more places, the map will be updated and expanded. It will stay on its own page at the top of this blog.

The blue road indicates the present routing of U.S. 40 or ALT U.S. 40. Red routes indicate older alignments of the National Road.

Blue markers show historic or general attractions, red markers are restaurants and dining facilities and green markers are for outdoor recreation and government-owned property. I’ll try to keep this updated weekly as I post new places.

    Have you seen Christopher Busta-Peck’s great maps of the road? He’s laid them out over Google Maps as you have. Look up his “125 M to B” blog (search for “125 M to B” and you’ll find it); the links are on the front page.

      That’s a great site! I really like the throughness of his maps and how he shows where each milemarker should be…I haven’t yet seen anything like that. Thanks for sharing!
