This map in color showing Madison County and part of Buncombe County was prepared for "The Roads of Madison County" by Sam Gray, an article appearing in May We All Remember Well: A Journal of the History and Cultures of Western North Carolina, Vol. II (2001); Robert S. Brunk, editor. Click here for more information about the book.
The map is coded to show the evolution of the transportation networks in this mountain county, from the old drovers' road by the river, to the railroad, to later highways, to the new Interstate.
