Significance: A regional Good Roads movement championed by the Natchez Trace Military Highway Association in 1916 continued an effort initiated by the Mississippi Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) to commemorate the Old Natchez Trace by paving it for modern automobile use. The infusion of New Deal funding for the project brought with it federal Bureau of Public Roads and National Park Service planners. The Natchez Trace Parkway today represents a remarkable achievement, merging a modern roadway with its surrounding rural landscape, making scores of natural and cultural resources related to the Old Trace accessible to the public. Segments of the Old Trace, and the Tupelo Homestead area, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1995, the Parkway's Double Arch Bridge near Franklin, Tennessee was selected for a Presidential Award in Design Excellence.
