The Richmond County Cruise links three charming and historic small towns in Richmond County—Ellerbe, Rockingham, and Hamlet—on a 33.7-mile ride. The tour begins at the Rankin Museum in Ellerbe at the edge of peach country, then travels cross-country to the county seat of Rockingham, where the main street circles the county courthouse in the downtown. From Rockingham it’s a short distance to Hamlet, which served as a major hub for the Seaboard Atlantic Railroad at its picturesque and historic depot. The return route passes Ledbetter Lake then retraces the initial part of the route beginning at the intersection at Greenleaf Church.
