Virginia's Midland Trail
Virginia's Midland Trail (U.S. Route 60) runs nearly 315 miles east/west from Hampton Roads to West Virginia. The road developed in the 1800's as various turnpikes were connected to move people and goods west of Richmond. It was designated a US Highway in 1926. Interstate 64 largely replaced US 60 by the 1980's.
The historic aspects of the Midland Trail are evident in many communities along Route 60. Local governments, tourism agencies and others are interested in promoting the heritage and attractions along the corridor. This website currently serves as a resource for those promoting Virginia's Midland Trail.
