The Oldest Road In America, The King’s Highway, Begins In South Carolina
Not many people realize the oldest road in America was created to connect Charleston and Boston by way of a 1,300-mile simple roadway closely following the coast in the American colonies. It was laid out and constructed between 1650 and 1735 and parts of it still exist today, at least in South Carolina. Other sections, particularly on the more northern end, have been incorporated into major highways.
