This route follows the Buffalo Trace from the Ohio to Licking rivers and was first known as "Smith's Wagon Road." In 1829, President Andrew Jackson's Postmaster General, Wm. T. Barry, planned mail stage route, extension of branch of "National Pike," from Zanesville through Lexington to New Orleans. Maysville to Washington was the first macadamized road west of the Alleghenies.
