Beverly Wiggins 18 Jan 2021 Reply Hello! I sent you a message on messenger a few days ago. I now see that perhaps I should have asked my question here. I am the Facebook administrator for the Chatham Historical Museum page. Several people have asked why old wagon roads were abandoned and new locations selected for later roads. One example asked about is the “Old Raleigh Rd.”, traces of which are still visible in the county in several locations. Can you shed light on this? Or do you have a post that addresses it? (I’ve scanned the titles and don’t see an obvious one.)I have linked to a number of your posts on our page and have drafts of several more that I will schedule soon. Thanks for a great blog!
