Formerly/Also Known As Nemacolin's Path
Nemacolin's Trail developed from a Native American trail across the southern Allegheny Mountains in Maryland and Pennsylvania. It was named after Nemacolin, a Delaware Nation chief who worked with Thomas Cresap in developing the route. Later the route was improved by George Washington, Edward Braddock and the engineers of the National Road.
