North Carolina Highway 700 is a primary state highway in the state of North Carolina. The highway runs east–west from Eden to US 29, in Pelham.

Route description[edit]

NC 127 is a rural two-lane highway, starting in Eden, where it overlaps with NC 770 for over a 1 mile (1.6 km) before switching to Fieldcrest Street. It goes southeast out of Eden, then northeast through a mix of forest and farmland. It ends at US 29, with a visitor center at same location.

History[edit]

Established in 1934 as a new primary routing, from northwest of Eden to Pelham. In 1957, NC 700 was truncated along the new freeway alignment of US 29. In 2000, NC 700 was truncated at NC 14/NC 87/NC 770 when all state highways was removed from central Eden.[2]
