A few months ago I traveled US highway 30 in Pennsylvania. Near
Chambersburg, PA I noticed three (3) things that attracted my
1.An area know as St. Thomas, founded in 1737, was named for
General Thomas Campbell. Who was Genl. Campbell?
2. North-west of Chambersburg there is a residential area known as
Scotland. Is there any historical significance about this area?
3. US highway 30 is also called 'Heritage Route". Is there a historical
background for this road? By any chance was it a "feeder route"
to Wilderness Road down the Shenandoah to Cumberland Gap?
Can any kind soul shed light on these questions? Thanks!
