Crutchfield is a small unincorporated community along the Yadkin River in the Marsh Township of Surry County, North Carolina (Powell 1968, p. 129).

Overview[edit]

The community, situated across the Yadkin River just north of Boonville was a stop on the former Southern Railway, now used by the Yadkin Valley Railroad.

The community is named for Charlie Crutchfield, a worker who died during the construction of a railroad trestle bridge in the area. Crutchfield, who had no relatives, was buried on the Yadkin County side of the river.[1]
