National Road Toll House

The photo below, which is from volume ten of the 1918 book "Maryland Geological Survey", shows a toll house along the National Road, in Allegany County, Maryland. I did not see any related text in the contents of the book. Click here to see an 1842 map that shows the location of this toll house.

Click here to see a third party photo of the toll house. The historic marker at that toll house reads "First toll gate house on the old National (Cumberland) Road. Erected about 1833 after this portion of the road was turned over to the state of Maryland by the United States Government. There was one other toll gate in Maryland on this road".
