The Petersburg Tollhouse, now located in the hamlet of Addison, Pennsylvania, United States, was the first tollhouse that travelers encountered while on the National Road heading west into Pennsylvania. The Old Route 40 now sits atop the National Pike at this tollhouse. The Petersburg tollhouse is one of three surviving tollhouses for the National Pike; the remaining ones are the LaVale tollhouse located between Cumberland and Frostburg, Maryland and the Searight's tollhouse located just west of Uniontown on Route 40.
The toll house is owned by Great Crossings Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, and is open to visitors by appointment.
