This group is dedicated to the historic significance of The Great Wagon Road. This early migration route allowed early pioneers to travel from Pennsylvania to Georgia during the 18th century. Group members are hard at work on preserving the route in order to have The Great Wagon Road proclaimed as a National Historic Trail.
The group still has several volunteer openings available. Researchers are needed for Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. A communications portal volunteer is still needed as well. If you are interested in joining the group, please contact us via the contact form.
