NC 113 is an exceptionally straight road in the area; the highway serves as a connector to Virginia from either NC 18 or U.S. Route 221 (US 221). Nearby New River State Park can be accessed by either via US 221 or South Fork Church Road. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 2.8 miles (4.5 km) south on NC 18. From Weigh Station Road to George Shepherd Road, the road straddles the Ashe/Alleghany county line for 1.8 miles (2.9 km).
NC 113 was established in 1930 as a primary new routing from Toluca to Newton. In late 1934, it was renumbered to NC 73 (replaced in 1940 by the current NC 10). NC 113 returned in 1937 as a renumbered route through Halifax when US 301 was rerouted to bypass the city. It was renumbered, around 1960, as US 301A (today as US 301 Business).
The third, and current, NC 113 was established in 1964, which was extended further north in 1977 to its current terminus after NC 93 was also rerouted further north.
