Abstract:
Known as “The Good Roads State,” North Carolina maintains the nation’s largest state highway system. Governor Locke Craig in the early 1900s set up the first highway commission, and in the 1920s, the so-called “mud tax” spurred widespread road construction. This article presents historical and personal accounts on the finest roads in North Carolina, from the Four Mile Desert Road in Perquimans County to Tatum Gap Road outside Andrews and Robbinsville.
