The Oldest Road In America, The King’s Highway, Passes Right Through Massachusetts

It should come as no surprise to long-time Bay Staters that this state is loaded with history. From the first Thanksgiving to the war for independence, you could argue that Massachusetts is the birthplace of the nation.

But did you know that this state is also home to the oldest highway in America? The King’s Highway starts out in Massachusetts and travels all the way down to the southern states.
