Mill Bridge Scenic Byway


Mill Bridge Byway is named for the flourmill built by Dr. Samuel Kerr in 1823. The Scotch-Irish settlement of Millbridge features Thyatira Church, one of North Carolina’s oldest Presbyterian churches. The route passes through land that has a rich history and long tradition of farming. With a population density of only about 50 people per square mile, this area is marked by open spaces, fields, streams, and working farms dotted with well-preserved historic homes, out buildings, and barns. Located along this stretch of road is the Piedmont Research Station, an agricultural research facility operated by North Carolina State University that includes study areas for dairy, poultry, field crops, and horticultural crops.
