The S.R. 16 corridor, gateway to the Town of Penney Farms, traverses a community which is over a century old and offers a flashback to the “small town” America of old in the midst of urban development. There is much to see and do along this designated stretch of S.R. 16 and the loop of local streets in and around town.
The J.C. Penney Memorial Scenic Highway passes through a series of natural and majestic features, including oak and magnolia canopies, and a variety of bottom land hardwoods, commercial forest, and wetlands landscapes. This byway invites travelers to experience the cultural, historical, and scenic resources of the Penney Farms community, such as Penney Memorial Church, Penney Retirement Community’s French Norman architecture, and the New Hope community.
