Built c. 1845 as Number 8 of the nine tollhouses on the Waynesburg-Greencastle-McConnellsburg turnpike which ran 2 miles from the Maryland state line east of Waynesboro through Mercersburg to McConnellsburg, this building is one of two extant tollhouses from this historic Baltimore to Pittsburgh trade route. Begun in 1819, the toll road took 17 years to complete and continued in operation until 1918 when it was taken over by the state.
