The Historical Roadbed that you see before you dates from the earliest colonial times of what is now Patrick County. This road may have been in use as early as the 1750 period. Approximately one thousand feet of this historic road forms the eastern boundary of the Laurel Hill property now owned by the J.E.B. Stuart Birthplace Preservation Trust Inc.

This road appears on maps dated as early as 1818, and was then known as the Old Sulphur Springs Road. As the road made its way to Mount Airy, it crossed present day Virginia route 773 and meandered across the fields to the left of Virginia route 773, and then rejoined the present day road a few hundred yards before it crossed the North Carolina state line. We do know that the old road crossed the state line at the same point as the present day road. It is thought that this old road was constructed along a portion of the eastern line of survey of David Bell's 2,816 acre patent obtained in 1753 which later became part of Elizabeth and Archibald Stuart's plantation called Laurel Hill.
