Reproduction historic map of Richmond, Indiana, published in 1884. Settled by Quaker families from North Carolina in 1806, Richmond was one of the cities along the route of the National Road which is today Highway 40. Also known as Cumberland Road, it was the first federally funded major road development project in the U.S. Construction began on the National Road in 1811 and was terminated in 1839, without reaching its planned destinations in Missouri, but ending at Vandalia, Illinois.
