Excerpted from the application to the US Department of the Interior-National Park Service- National Register of Historic Places Registration form, much of Old Georgetown Road is a Nationally Protected Road: This 6.6 mil section of the Old Georgetown Road is one of the last and longest continuously unpaved public portions of the 1,300 mile pre-Revolutionary road that connected Charleston to Boston….Originally, this portion of the road was an Indian trading path, known as the Sewee Broad Path…The trading path became a stage road, became part of the National Post Route, and was traveled by President George Washington in 1791.
