1787This 6-miles-to-Baltimore marker was welcomed by thousands on horseback, in stagecoaches and wagons, who traveled this Frederick Turnpike. Some headed west to settle in the Ohio Valley, along with merchants selling their wares, while millers with their products, and farmers, driving animals on foot to market, traveled east through Catonsville to the port city of Baltimore.
