You traveled the road-- now learn it's story. The Valley Turnpike Museum, celebrates the history and heritage of today's US Route 11, aka The Valley Turnpike. Once the main thoroughfare throughout the Shenandoah Valley, it aided migration from the north to the south, both in pioneer days and today. The museums highlights the road's history from its beginnings as a buffalo path to the Civil War and Stonewall Jackson, to today's use of it as a more scenic way to experience the Valley.
