Barber or Barber Junction

BARBER - Community on old US 70 in Rowan County.  The community is also known as Barber Junction as two rail lines cross here.  

The community is named after W. P. Barber who the railroad purchased the land from in order to build the junction.  In 1898, a Victorian style depot was built for freight and passengers as a number of passengers would change trains here.
