| About The Site
My interest in compiling a Maryland route listing
predates the (publically available) Internet. It all began in 1992 when out of curiosity I looked at a
Hearne Bros. Maryland wall map from the fifties, and noticed the difference in
routes between then and now (there were many more back then). I hurried
and took some scribbled notes and crude maps. I've been intrigued by highways and maps since childhood,
but had never thought of it from a historical persepctive. Yes, new highways are built over the
years, but other routes and their numbers disappear over time, many of them obscure routes
with an equally obscure or undocumented demise.
I saw the Web as the perfect outlet for my knowledge of the subject, as others did
for their roadly know-how in their corners of the world.
I hope you find this site (what part of it is here) useful and informative. As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas you may have.
