Did you know?

Did you know that if the old National Pike could talk it might have some very interesting stories? Several U.S. presidents traveled on it to Clear Spring and on to Camp Harding.

Many plush stagecoaches, freight wagons and covered wagons carrying families and farmers driving their cattle and pigs used the old road.
