Roxboro Street

Roxboro Street was originally a section of the Roxboro-Fayetteville road, part of a state system to connect county seats. North of the Eno River, a northwestern fork ran to Leasburg (orginal Caswell County seat) and Milton on the Dan River. Section between Roxboro and Guess roads is still "Milton Road." The Roxboro Road appears on the Blount Map of Durham's Station c. 1867, but its configuration changed as the town developed in the 1870s. By 1884 the road had been routed into its present-day configuration, but ended at the railroad. Present-day South Roxboro Street was "Pine Street" until the early 1950s, and in 1959 it became one-way northbound as a companion to southbound Mangum Street. South Roxboro Street was widened and slightly reconfigured during urban renewal in the 1970s.
