Hey ya'll, where ya'll from?

I mean really, do you know where you are from? Do you want to find out?
Visit this website for The Wilderness Road: Virginia's Heritage Migration Route then come and see us here in Virginia.  THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGAN!
Wilderness Trail in Virginia
Blockhouse on the Wilderness Trail at Natural Tunnel State Park
Our little section of The Carolina Road runs right through our Franklin County at Waid Homestead. 
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. 

Daniel Boone slept here, and Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, and Thomas Jefferson, oh and George Washington and let's not forget Patrick Henry! See the historical timeline for this migratory route here.
