The Kings Highway was built back when Strang and his followers were on the island.  It runs down the center of the island with all other roads leading to it.  Originally parts of it were corduroy, made by the laying of logs side by side over swampy areas.  Several years ago it was paved and you may still hear the comment, "I walked (rode, drove) to the EOP, meaning the End of Pavement.  

Business are now starting to pop up along this main island road, and they are sure to increase as years go by.
