Historic Markers Are a Curiosity
The concrete markers for the Yadkin Road/Trail, located at Manly Presbyterian Church, the Pinehurst Traffic Circle, Page Road and the Pinewild N.C. 211 entrance, have been here all my life.
You still can see part of the trail if you know where to look. I was wondering who put them up and when. It looks like someone is trying to keep them up.
Does anyone know anything about these historical markers? The one off Page Road in Pine-hurst has a small R/R iron in back for a brace; could this be part of the track that the trolley ran on down Midland Road (from Pinehurst to Southern Pines)?
It’s great that this small portion of history is still visible in Moore County. Any help would be appreciated.
