The rails were laid and the wheels of the iron horse rolled toward new horizons. Railroad lines connected Rockingham County goods to a larger market. They connected people to others in the county and beyond. It wasn’t until the Piedmont Railroad was built in 1862-1864 that trains arrived in Rockingham County. When they did, it made a major impact.
