Extending from Alexandria to Vestal's Ferry near Charles Town, West Virginia, this colonial highway was a principal route from the Northern Neck of Virginia through the Blue Ridge to the Ohio Country. In the early 1770's, the road became the major artery in the movement of settlers and armies to the frontiers. Vetal's Gap Road fell into disuse after Leesburg Pike opened to the north about 1825.
