Shallow Ford is one of the newest addition to NC Historic Sites, and is currently under development. The ford was one of the main crossing points on the Yadkin River for thousands of years. It was important to the lives of Native Americans, European colonists, soldiers of multiple wars, and citizens of the State of North Carolina.
This 246 acre site was established to preserve and interpret the history of Shallow Ford. The site is currently closed to the public as planning and improvements are designed and built, with a goal of opening by 2025.
