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.
