Maryland Route 178 is a fairly short state route, just over 8 miles (13 km) long. It is a small snippet of the Generals Highway, post road linking the Maryland capital, Annapolis, with Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This road dates back to 1733, but it was only given the state route number 178 in 1927. The Route 178 designation covers the segment of road from Parole (a suburb of Annapolis) to Crownsville. Much of the traffic the road once saw has since shifted to nearby I-97. However, Route 178 is still on the state rolls as an active designation to this day.
Revisit your experiences along this historic Maryland highway with our replica Maryland Route 178 highway marker. It is made to the exact 1954 specifications as used along the route. We’ve painstakingly duplicated the custom fonts used only in Maryland on signs of this type. It’s the closest thing you can get to the real thing without a time machine!
Our Maryland Route 178 sign is flat printed on sturdy 14-gauge steel. It has a glossy, nonreflective finish, durable enough to withstand the elements outdoors but still looking great as part of your home decor. Get it in your choice of four sizes, from 12 in. × 10 in. all the way up to 36 in. × 30 in. Two convenient mounting holes are included. (We can make this route marker with any number you want, in any size you want! We can also make state route markers of any style, from any state or province.
