1940’s

The National Road now overlaid by US Route 40, is the busiest it has been since its heyday during the 1840’s. Instead of Conestoga wagons, there are tractor-trailer trucks, stages are replaced by buses and horses are retired to pasture in lieu of the automobile. Inns and taverns are updated as restaurants, motels and hotels. The hustle and bustle of travel has returned to the Road.
