Beginnings [1]

The valley in which lies Mount Airy was know by early settlers as The Hollows. The small community began being settled in the 1820s, growing up as a stop along the stagecoach route connecting Salem (now Winston-Salem), North Carolina with Wytheville, Virginia. By the late 1850s Mount Airy had grown to a village of about 300 people, It contained at the time a tavern, a textile factory, a wagon & buggy shop and several other small mercantile establishments.
