This road, formerly an Indian trail which paralleled the coast, was used by the Spanish and the British.
In 1778 it was traveled by the Revolutionary soldiers who marched against Fort Tonyn at Point Peter.

Albert Gallatin while U.S. Secretary of the Treasury in 1805 recommended the Old St. Marys Road, a portion of the Post Road, as one of seven principal routes that were important to U.S. defense and postal service.
