Central NY was the center of the wooden roads boom in the US – until they rotted - Syracuse.com

Monday, July 04, 2016

At the time it was a huge leap forward to have a firm surface you could run horses and wagons down," said North Syracuse village historian Bill Fergerson, who runs the family business, Fergerson Funeral Home, on land his family settled in 1826. "If you could get into the city, you could open yourself to the Erie Canal."In a land of snowy winters and soggy springs, plank roads offered "unblemished facilities for travel, at all seasons, while common roads are rendered impassable by the continued rains of autumn, the occasional thaws of mid-winter, or the 'breaking up' in spring," said one report in the mid-1840s.Geddes understood the importance of moving farm goods. His Fairmount farm, which won two first-place prizes at the state fair, was a 500-acre science experiment. Geddes wrote extensively for agricultural journals and had a special interest in fertilizers.The farm drew young and still aimless Frederick Law Olmsted, who spent six months at Fairmount just as Geddes was beginning his plank road mission. Olmsted would go on to become America's foremost landscape architect, whose commissions included Central Park and the meandering park systems of Boston and Buffalo.Geddes, as the guru of plank roads, received requests for construction from around the country. One of those requests came from John C. Calhoun, a South Carolina politician who was one of only two men to serve as vice president of the United States under two different presidents. (The other was New York's George Clinton.)The initial success of the Syracuse plank road helped inspire more. An early report on the construction of plank roads said that the first eight miles of the Syracuse-Central Square road generated $12,900 in tolls in just two years. Given the cost of maintenance and the durability of the boards, the road could generate 100 to 200 percent profit, the report said."If the plank road hadn't been a profitable venture, it might have been the first and last in the country, but plank roads sprung up everywhere after the Syracuse-Central Square road proved so successful," according to a plank road history at the North Syracuse village office.William H. Bogart, who also wrote a biography of Daniel Boone, wrote one of the first detailed reports about the Syracuse-Central Square road. Bogart shared Geddes's enthusiasm, calling plank roads, canals and railroads the "three great inscriptions graven on the earth by the hand of modern science, never to be obliterated."In New York, the roads were built largely with private funds, and profits were to be made by charging tolls at booths along the route way.A vehicle drawn by two horses paid 1.5 cents per mile. A horse and rider paid half a cent. Pedestrians were free.Construction used massive amounts of wood. An 1847 call for sealed bids of lumber said the first six miles of the Syracuse and Tully Plank Road would require 1 million board feet of 4-inch-thick,...
