America's Scenic Byways

Historic National Road - Pennsylvania

90 miles - Two hours to drive or two days to enjoy this byway.

The Historic National Road is the Nation's first federally funded highway. Opening westward expansion, it became a transportation corridor for goods and people, creating the great cultural diversity we treasure. Visitors experience a physical timeline -- classic inns, toll houses, diners, and motels that trace 200 years of American history.
