「絹の道」は、1859年に横浜が開港し、
その後、鉄道が発達する明治の中ごろまで、
輸出用の生糸が多数運ばれたルートのひとつです。
かつては「神奈川往還」または「浜街道」と言われていました。 
八王子市は「絹の道碑」の前から、「御殿橋」のたもとまでの
約1.5kmを史跡に指定しています

道了堂とは、鑓水商人の大塚吾郎吉が中心となって峠を通る旅人や村内の安全のために、
村でも見晴らしの良い峠の上に、浅草花川戸から道了尊を勧請して明治7年(1874)に
創建したものです。
地元の人々の信仰を集めて繁栄していましたが、
しだいに荒廃し、昭和58年(1983)には倒壊しかけた堂が撤去され、
「大塚山公園」として整備されました。
今は礎石の跡と石の灯篭などがわずかに、かつての面影を残しています。
