Ridge Road in Loudoun County #virginiapioneersnet #vagenealogy


Ridge Road in Loudoun County

Fry Jefferson Map of 1755The old Ridge Road (over Broad Run) was built before 1755 and was one of the earliest highway bridges in the territory. A record of it was preserved on the 1755 edition of the Fry & Jefferson Map where a wooden bridge is shown at that point. The picturesque stone bridge that now spans the stream may not have been construted before 1820, at about which time that part of the road was improved by the Leesburg Turnpike Company. The popular legend in the region has it that the road was built by George Washington as a young man.
