I had the pleasure of growing up in Lewisville, NC and still reside in it today! I love the small town feel yet being minutes to Winston-Salem. Always a delightful community, Lewisville has evolved with tree lined sidewalks down Shallowford Road, the main thoroughfare, with one stoplight and 2 traffic circles at the 421 bridge and has several public parks to offer the community. Lewisville is defined by it’s sweeping rural landscapes that are stunning and comfortable for those looking to escape city life.
Shallow Ford History
More than 250 years ago the Yadkin River between what is now Shallowford Road and Courtney-Huntsville Road, was occupied by Indians who farmed the bottomland and fished in the river. By the mid 1700’s, Europeans had begun settling in the area. Shallow Ford was a spot in the Yadkin River named for a solid rock base and water level that averaged less than three feet deep. This made it ideal for wagons, stagecoaches, and army cannons to safely cross the river. Settlers in the area finished cutting the roads on both sides of the Yadkin River at Shallow Ford, completing the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road in 1754.
