The Bank Road (also known as the Cumberland Turnpike) ran between Conococheague, Hagerstown and Cumberland. It began in 1812 and reached Cumberland in 1820. It derives its name from the banks who agreed to foot the bill for its construction. It is now designated at Alternate Route 40, Scenic Route 40 and State Route 144.
