Long Description:
In the 18th century,
seven families from
Staffordshire, England, the pottery center
of England, settled within a five-mile radius
of each other near the northwest corner
of Moore County. Today, their descendants
continue to make both traditional and
modern pottery forms. There are nearly 80
potteries in the vicinity of this byway and
several directly along the route.
Byway starts Highway 705 in Eagle Springs and ending in Seagrove, putting Robbins, NC right in the middle.
