US 119 was an original 1926 route. At the time its south end was in Morgantown WV. Northbound US 19 crossed the Monongahela River via the Pleasant Street bridge, and then turned north on University Avenue. US 119 began by continuing straight ahead on Pleasant. The photo below is looking north on University, which today serves as US 119...

...but originally US 119 began to the right on Pleasant.
Apparently the north end of US 119 has always been about a mile south of Du Bois PA, at its junction with US 219. The photo below shows the "End" sign on 119 as it approaches 219 (or Brady Street):

In case you can't make it out, the green sign indicates that it's 59 miles to Ebensburg via 219, and 17 miles to Punxsutawney via 119. Both routes have junctions with US 322 about a mile ahead.
