As reported in the news:
Completing the York and Gettysburg Turnpike
The Republican Compiler, Gettysburg, PA
December 8, 1819
The York and Gettysburg turnpike is completed - this road was the only link wanting to a chain to connect Chambersburg and the city of Philadelphia by a turnpike. This route will shorten the distance between Lancaster and Chambersburg about 15 miles, which going and coming on bad roads would make a whole day's ride. On the 1st of January next daily stages will begin to run between Lancaster and Chambersburg, on this road.
