NC 103 is an eight-and-a-half-mile North Carolina State Highway. It runs entirely in Surry County. Its main purpose is to connect the northern end of Surry with Mount Airy. A 5.8 miles (9.3 km) segment of the highway is known as the Donna Fargo Highway, named to honor a local country music star.
The western terminus is at NC 89/US 52 Business in downtown Mount Airy. This is next door to the Mount Airy Visitor Center. NC 103 barely gets away from the outskirts of Mount Airy, before crossing over into Virginia. NC 103 continues into Virginia as State Route 103, near Claudville. By now, NC 103 is truly in rural countryside.
Historical NC 103
This was a result of Virginia's renumbering: NC 103 would supplement VA 103. There have been no other major changes made.
