The Dr. Edna B. McKenzie Signs atop Negro Mountain, the highest point on the National Road on U. S. 40 in Garrett County, Maryland.

The National Road runs from the State of Illinois to the State of Maryland and is the road that built America.

The picture was taken by Dr. Artie Travis, Vice President of Student Affairs at Frostburg State University in Frostburg Maryland. Frostburg State is an Institutional member of the McKenzie Branch. We thank and applaud Dr. Travis’ efforts in assisting us with this most important endeavor.

Dr. Travis will ask the President of Frostburg State University to submit a letter of endorsement to the U. S. Board on Geographic Names on behalf of the Dr. Edna B. McKenzie Branch’s  Initiative on Negro Mountain.
