Braddock's Trail

From the book, Stagecoach And Tavern Days:

Braddock’s trail became the famous route for crossing the Alleghany Mountains for the principal pioneers who settled southwestern Pennsylvania and western Virginia, and all their effects were carried to their new homes on packhorses. 
Madonna on the Trail

There are 12 Madonna statues dedicated to the spirit of pioneer women who traversed the trail(s).
