Baltimore and Frederick-Town TurnpikeMD
The Baltimore and Frederick-Town Turnpike began in 1805 and connected the seaport of Baltimore with Ellicott City, Mount Airy, New Market Frederick and Boonsboro. The road was developed as a means to move goods to and from Baltimore to the expanding frontier farms. Today it is designated as State Route 144 and Alternate Route 40.
