Stokes County is located north of Forsyth County and was formed in 1789 from Surry County. The county was named for John Stokes, an American Revolutionary War captain. With almost 50,000 residents, it offers a more rural and small town setting compared to Winston-Salem. One of the counties best attractions is Hanging Rock in the Sauratown Mountains, which is one of the most popular state parks in the Triad region.
