Snickersville Turnpike History
The Snickersville Turnpike route has played an important role in colonial America, in the development of the early frontier, in the Civil War, and as a commerce route for Loudoun County in the late 1800s.
As other local turnpikes such Leesburg Pike and Little River Turnpike have been developed into major highways, the Snickersville Turnpike was fortunately spared, and it is today a treasured rural relic of days gone by.
It now presents an authentic view of the way things used to be in Loudoun County, with historic stone walls, bridges, and structures along the byway. The rural nature of the 'pike still exists.
Snickersville Turnpike is a rare gem that the Snickersville Turnpike Association hopes to preserve in the face of increased population and development pressure. Please join us in our efforts!
