About the Speaker:
Lorna Hainesworth is known by many as the Maryland National Road Ambassador due to her
efforts to promote the road from within and from outside the state. Lorna calls herself, “an old
roads person” as her interests include the Lincoln Highway, Route 66, the Dixie Highway,
Highway 61, A1A and several others along with the entire Historic National Road from
Baltimore to St. Louis.

Lorna will present the history of Maryland’s Historic National Road between Baltimore and
Cumberland during the period 1745 through 1823. This old road is in reality a cobbling together
of a series of turnpikes that are commonly referred to as the National Pike. Lorna has traveled
and studied this road for the past ten years.
