Great Wagon Road Project

Piedmont Trails hopes to have this historic route recognized as a national historic trail. The project began in 2019 and contains tens of thousands of documents portraying the great migration during the mid-18th-century.

Colonial Indentured Servants Project

Piedmont Trails hopes to acknowledge the names and lives of those who were held in bondage during the 17th and 18th-century. The project began in 2020 and has captured thousands of pages holding court records, and ship lists holding the names of so many indentured servants. These lives deserve to be remembered for the future generations. Their stories capture our hearts as we discover so many who sailed under false pretenses to a new land.

Yadkin Valley Railroad Project

Piedmont Trails shares North Carolina’s oldest existing railroad. The project began in 2020 and continues discovering the families and the small towns along this historic rail line.
