Old Georgetown Road

Over the centuries, Old Georgetown Road was part of a major Indian trail, a rolling road for moving tobacco, the main wagon and stage coach road from Georgetown to Frederick, the first military road in the American colonies, the route of a trolley line to a popular amusement park, and a conduit to the primary east-west and north-south thruways in the area. The road has had a long and distinguished history.
