1865-1928

It was the wisdom and farsighted vision of Robert Crain, with his public spirit and progressive purpose, that resulted in the building of the first highway connecting southern Maryland to the rest of the state.

With energy, enthusiasm, diplomacy, and conviction he persuaded Maryland's leaders of the feasibility of this project, and those who travel this road will be reminded of the invaluable service rendered by him.
