Overview

The Great Philadelphia Wagton Road Ran from Philadelphia east through Pennsylvania, and then veered south to run down through the Valley of Virginia. The road veered due south at about Roanoke, recrossing the Blue Ridge to enter North Carolina. It terminated at Bethabara, a Moravian community on the Yadkin River.
