By about 1735, the Fall Line Road cut off from the Kings
Highway at Fredericksburg, Virginia and continued to points south
following the "fall line," a geological feature which
acts as a separation between the lower river tidelands and upper
inland elevations on the Atlantic Coast.
The Fall Line Road continued on this path as far south as
Augusta, Georgia. Check your road atlas and find US Highway 1,
then identify all of the counties of Virginia, North Carolina,
and South Carolina that the route intersects. You will find the
places where your ancestors may have stopped en route on the
Fall Line Road.
