00 ~ polo rd ~66 viewsIn 1923 a new sand clay road ran through the middle of the Fries Brothers new development of Oak Crest. They called this portion of the road Oak Crest Dr. It intersected with the concrete highway (aka Boone Trail Highway and now Reynolda Rd). The county had just completed a new sand clay road (now east Polo Rd) that began at the concrete highway where the already existing Mount Tabor Rd (now west Polo Rd) intersected. At that time the new road headed east to intersect with Old Town Rd (now University Pky), Rural Hall Rd (now Cherry St), and ending at Walkertown Rd (now Indiana Av).

Later, sometime between ...... the name was changed to Polo Rd. Polo Rd gets its name from a polo field that was once located where the current ball fields are at Speas Elementary School. I have been told that Polo Rd was paved circa 1936.
