The era of building rural brick roads lasted about a decade in the early part of the 20th-century in North Carolina. Several coastal counties, including Pasquotank and Craven, chose brick because it was cheap and easy to install. Parts of these roads still exist. Pasquotank County built the Weeksville Road in 1920 and the Newland Road in 1921. Newland Road is the state's only road listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In Craven County, brick road restoration projects include a section of Rhem Road, that runs through the town of River Bend, and a stretch of the old Kinston Highway, now called Beamon Road.
