Up Stones from the County Walk Prev Next Slideshow

This stone is from one of the four Guernsey County “S” Bridges, which were constructed as part of the National Road c.1828. Stagecoaches, wagons, foot travelers, and livestock all went over these bridges when they were new, and two still carry traffic today. The Old National Road followed Zane’s Trace, the first trail heading west in 1796. Railroads followed this same path in 1850, then US 40 (1920) and I-70 (the 1960s). | Guernsey
