The North Carolina Civil War Trail

The Yadkin County portion of the North Carolina Civil War Trail was completed on March 19, 2008 with the installation of markers at the following locations: Yadkinville, Bond School House, Jonesville, Richmond Hill, Huntsville, and Windsor's Crossroads.

Richmond Hill

A 30-acre park surrounds the beautifully restored antebellum home of Chief Justice and Mrs. Richmond Mumford Pearson & family, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Justice Pearson operated a law school here in the mid-nineteenth century. The nature trails are marked, and a descriptive brochure about the plants and trees you'll see is available at the "talking" information board. Richmond Hill received a North Carolina Civil War Trail marker in March 2008.

From May through October, you may also attend an Open House tour of this historic home, which are given by knowledgeable volunteer docents in period dress. Tours are given on the third Sunday between the hours of 2:00 and 4:30.

Restrooms are located adjacent to the two covered picnic shelters.  Richmond Hill is located on Law School Road, north of Highway 67, midway between Boonville and East Bend, North Carolina.  

The Yadkin Valley Mill

The mill on Butner Mill Road near East Bend is beautifully restored and well worth a detour. This is the only functioning watermill left in the county.

Huntsville

Huntsville's North Carolina Civil War Trail marker is located at the Battle Branch Café (intersection of Farmington Road and Courtney-Huntsville Road).

Hamptonville

Hamptonville's North Carolina Civil War Trail marker is located at the Windsor's Crossroads Community Building, on the corner of Buck Shoals Road and Windsor Road.

Rockford

Historic Rockford, located a stone's throw from Richmond Hill, is a great example of community involvement and historic preservation. It was the county seat of Surry County from 1790-1851.

The Surry County portion of the North Carolina Civil War Trail features a marker in Rockford at the York Tavern, and another downriver in Siloam (at the Reeves Homeplace).
