Today in the blistery wind and snow, I decided to visit the Petersburg Toll House located in Addison, Pa. The toll house was built in 1835 from the native stone in the area. It was referred to as gate number one as it was the first toll house after crossing the line between Maryland and Pennsylvania. The tolls collected were used for maintenance of the road and to pay the toll collector who lived in the toll house. Toll houses were typically built about 15 miles apart on the National Road. #2eightphotography
