Abstract:
The new technology in road building in the state in the 1850s was the plank road. When one was built from Fayetteville to Winston, a distance of over one hundred miles, the people of that time considered it a great engineering feat. Robins's article includes a contract with specifications for the construction of a seven-mile stretch of this road in Randolph County, between Asheboro and High Point. The contract was signed on January 3, 1852.
