GATEPOST (National Road nr Frostburg MD)

GATEPOST (National Road nr Frostburg MD)

This iron post originally was nearer the highway--where the paved shoulder is now. The National Road had two lanes of crushed stone.

A counterbalanced pole swung up and down, operated by a rope from the toll house, which no longer exists. A similar system, electrically-operated, is used today to block railroad crossings.
