N.C. 803  dead
Formerly:
NC 803: Appeared as new primary routing in 1931, running as stub from NC 80southwest to Cooleemee. In 1932 NC 803 was extended as new primary routing southwest through Barber to end at NC 150 (now NC 152) Mooresville. In 1933, NC 803 was renumbered as part of NC 801. Today it is still NC 801 except from Woodleaf to Barber is now "Old NC 801"
The March 1931 Official shows but does not label 803. However, on page 20 of the book "Paving Tobacco Road" by Walter Turner shows a piece of what he called the 1931 Official that does show 803 extended to Mooresville.
