The National Road Museum will honor the nation’s first federal highway system
intended to expand and populate America’s untamed west.

We will present artifacts through exhibits, programs and special events
for the local community, Washington County and visitors to the state of Maryland.

The National Road Museum is located in Boonsboro MD, the site
of the nation’s first macadam road construction here in1823.

Our museum is minutes from these historic sites:
• Antietam National Battlefield
• C & O Canal National Historical Park
• Harpers Ferry National Historic Park
• Washington Monument State Park

This museum is located next to the last standing Trolley Station Museum in Washington County.
