The first NC 207 was an original state highway, running from NC 20 (now US 74 Bus) Forest City southeast to Carolleen and Cliffside before ducking south into South Carolina.
NC 207 used today's US 221 ALT from Forest City to Cliffside. in Cliffside it used Old Main St and a road no longer present to cut east to 221 ALT at Boling Springs Rd. Near South Carolina, NC 207 used "Old US 221A Hwy"
About 1932, US 221 was added to the entirety of NC 207.
in late 1934, NC 207 was dropped from the numbering system.

NC 207 replaced by US 221

Comment: NC 207 doesn't really have much purpose as a through route as US 601 accomplishes the same movement.
SC 207 predates NC 207 by several years...
