🇺🇸 State Road is an unincorporated community located in the Bryan Township of Surry County, North Carolina and part of Edwards III Township in eastern Wilkes County, North Carolina. The community's unique name is derived from its location on U.S. Route 21. Legend has it that when US 21 was first being built, locals constructed a horseshoe pit on the graded road surface. On Sunday afternoons when they got together to pitch horseshoes they would say "let's go to state road" and the name stuck.
State Road has a population of over 3,047 people. State Road is situated 77 km north-west of Winston-Salem.
