Transportation in Elkton

Highway 31, or the Bee Line Highway, was the main North-South route before the interstate was built. Highway 31 went through the center of town and in front of the Elkton School. Riding the bus, catching a ride with someone else, walking and horseback riding were all common means of transportation.
