Auto Trails

Among the interesting thingsĀ I’ve found on the farm is this 1922 “Auto Trails Map.”

None of the roads in our county were yet paved, but the roads from Chatham to Danville and from Danville to Houston (now Halifax) were identified as “improved.” Our community (Keeling) boasted a population of 37 at the time.

I imagine travel by automobile was quite a challenging adventure in those days.
