The National Road Heritage Museum will honor the nation’s first federal highway system, which was built with the intention to expand and populate America’s untamed west. Winding its way directly through Boonsboro, the National Road paved the way for hundreds of thousands of immigrants, whose search for a better life spurred economic growth and helped unify our fledgling nation.
The museum will be a dramatic place for discovery and imagination sparking a passion for American history.
This museum will stand next to the last standing Trolley Station Museum in Washington County (a successful project completed by the National Road Heritage Foundation).
