Historical Significance

For history buffs seeking a true 18th century roadbed, Franklin County's Waid Recreation Park is the only place to go. The multi-use park features one-fourth mile of the original Carolina Road. Local heritage also springs to life at the Franklin County Historical Society Museum and the Depot in Rocky Mount. East of town visitors can explore the nation's African American history at the Booker T. Washington National Monument.
