FRONT VIEW OF MODERN TOBACCO BARN, 

Showing the manner of taking the tabacco to the barn in baskets, with girls sticking 
the leaves on wires. A barn 16X20 will cure 25 acres in one season, burning only 
five cords of wood, 14 leaves cured from each plant, and the tobacco greatly 
improved in weight and flavor.

OUR COUNTRY. 



TO OUR AGENTS. 



This Directory of North Carolina is issued in a 
time of great prosperity to the State. I congratulate my 
Agents (more than one hundred in all) in the ninety-six 
different counties, on the valuable work they have 
enabled me to accomplish for the State during the last 
twenty-three years. I now issue the Seventh Edition, 
which shows great prosperity in all lines of business. 
We have stood together well against all opposition. Let 
our organization continue and let us go forward. 

LEVI BRANSON. 

October i, 1889. 



Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1889, by Levi Branson, in the office of 
the Librarian of Congress, at Washington.

BRUNSWICK COUNTY. 

AREA 950 Square Miles. 
Population 9,390; White 5,338, Colored 4,052. 



Brunswick County was formed in 
1764, from the counties of Bladen and 
New Hanover. It derives its name from 
the Prince of Brunswick, who, the same 
year, married the King's oldest sister. 
The county is situated on the west side 
of Cape Fear river, and is the extreme 
southern point of the State. 

Southport is the county-seat, and is' 
situated at the mouth of the Cape Fear, 
173 miles south of Raleigh. Population 
1,400; white 900, colored 500. 

Surface — Brunswick is generally level 
and sandy, much of the land is in swamps, 
and requires draining before cultivation. 

Staples — Cotton, corn, ground peas, 
sweet potatoes, rice, turpentine and lum- 
ber. The soil next to the sound produces 
abundant crops of pea-nuts. Some farm- 
ers are growing grapes successfully. 

Fruits — Apples, peaches, grapes, pears, 
melons, &c. 

Timbers — Long-leaf pine, juniper, live 
oak, cypress, ash, &c. 

U. S. FORTIFICATIONS. 

Fort Caswell is 2 miles below Smithville. 

Fort Johnston, at Smithville, is not gar- 
risoned. 

Fort Anderson is 10 miles north of Smith- 
ville. 

Fort Fisher is near Smithville, but is in 
New Hanover county, and is celebrated 
for the battles of 1864-65.

BUNCOMBE COUNTY. 

AREA 620 Square Miles. 
Population 25,910; White 21,424, Colored 4,486. 



Buncombe County was formed in 
1791, from Burke and Rutherford coun- 
ties, and derives its name from Col. 
Edward Buncombe, of Tyrrell county, 
who was Colonel of the Fifth North Car- 
olina Regiment in the Continental Army. 

It lies immediately west of the Blue 
Ridge, and is the centre of the Trans- 
montane section. 

Asheville, the county-seat, is on the 
French Broad river. It was named in 
honor of Gov. Samuel Ashe, of New 
Hanover, and was originally called Mor- 
ristown. Its elevation is 2,250 feet above 
sea-level. 

The population is about 10,250, and it 
is one of the most noted summer resorts 
in the South. 

Asheville is the metropolis of " The 
Land of the Sky." 

Surface — Buncombe county is situated 
on the west side of the Blue Ridge, and 
occupies a beautiful rolling country down 
the Swannanoa and French Broad rivers, 
which streams water it finely, and along 
the valleys of which are found thousands 
of acres of very rich lands. Nearly all 
the land in this county is susceptible of 
cultivation, as the fine growth of timber 
even on the sides of the mountains indi- 
cates. The scenery is enchanting — the 
air invigorating. 

Staples — Corn, wheat, rye, oats and live 
stock. Tobacco is now being grown suc- 
cessfully, and of fine quality. 

Fruits — Peaches, apples, pears, grapes, 
chestnuts, and nearly every kind of fruit 
grown to great perfection. 

Timber — Walnut, white pine, oak, pop- 
lar, hickory, ash, maple, cherry, chestnut 
and many other kinds of wood noted in 
the fine arts. 

Minerals — Mica and other valuable 
minerals are found in this county. Min- 
eral and iron springs abound. The water- 
power is unsurpassed.

CARTERET COUNTY. 

Area ?20 Square Miles. 
Population 9,785; White 7,107, Colored 2,678. 



Carteret County was one of the 
original precincts of the Lords Proprie- 
tors, and was called in honor of one of 
the Lords, Sir George Carteret. It bor- 
ders on the Atlantic Ocean for a distance 
of 75 miles, and is so near to the Gulf 
Stream as to make the climate quite equa- 
ble all the year round. 

Beaufort, the county-seat, is on Beau- 
fort harbor, and is a town of growing im- 
portance. It is a delightful summer re- 
sort, 144 miles east of Raleigh, and has a 
population of 2,500. 

Morehead City, the terminus of the 
Atlantic & North Carolina Railroad, is a 
beautiful new city. It has a population 
of 849, and is a charming sea-side home. 

Surface — The land is low and level, 
much of it in swamps and marshes. It 
extends up and down the sound for sev- 
enty miles. A portion of the county in 
narrow strips, called The Banks, lies be- 
tween the sound and the ocean. Much 
of the swamp is very rich and very pro- 
ductive when well drained. 

Staples — There are some very fine cot- 
ton lands in this county. The moisture 
of the climate has a tendency to produce 
a fine, soft fabric. Corn grows well, and 
in the western portion, along the sound, 
ground-peas are produced to perfection. 
Sweet potatoes are raised in large quanti- 
ties, of superior quality The fisheries 
are extensive and often very valuable. 

The last battle fought in the State with 
the Indians was fought in 1712, within 
one mile of the present town of Beaufort. 
Col. James Moore, of South Carolina, 
was in charge of the Colonial forces. The 
battle was with ihe Core Indians, who in- 
habited this county. 

Fruits — Fig^, apples, peaches, pears, 
grapes and melons to great perfection. 

Timbers —Live oak, lo.ig-leaf pine, ce- 
dar, cypress, ash, gum and juniper.

CASWELL COUNTY. 

Area 400 Square Miles. 
Population 17,825 ; White 7,168, Colored 10,687. 



Caswell County was erected in 1777, 
out of Orange county, and takes its name 
from Richard Caswell, the first Governor 
of the State under the Constitution. 

Yanceyville, its capital (named in 
compliment of Hon. Bartlett Yancey), is 
69 miles northwest from Raleigh, and 
contains a population of 965. 

Surface — Caswell county lies on the 
south bank of Dan river, and on small 
tributary streams. The surface is mod- 
erately uneven, and the soil generally 
good, especially for tobacco. There are 
probably no finer tobacco lands in 
America. 

Staples — Tobacco is the great staple in 
this county. The leaf grown here is cele- 
brated far and near. Wheat, corn and 
oats grow finely, but are not considered 
so profitable as tobacco. 

Fruits — Apples, peaches, pears, and all 
the small fruits, melons. 

Timber — Oak, hickory, walnut, poplar, 
pine and various other kinds common to 
the middle part of the State.

CATAWBA COUNTY. 

Area 440 Square Miles. 
Population 14,946; White 12,472, Colored 2,474. 



Catawba County was cut off from 
Lincoln county in 1842, and takes its 
name from the beautiful river which 
forms its northern boundary. 

Newton, the county-seat, is directly 
on the Western North Carolina Railroad, 
and is 178 miles west of Raleigh. Popu- 
lation 1,656. 

Surface — This county is situated in the 
bend of the Catawba river, which makes 
a curve around the north and east sides. 
The land is moderately uneven, and most 
of it quite productive; it is well watered, 
and plenty of water-power for immense 
machinery. Catawba is a prosperous 
county, out of debt, taxes low, and money 
in the treasury — a desirable place to settle. 
The celebrated Sparkling Catawba Springs 
are in this county. 

Staples — Corn, cotton and wheat are 
the great staples, and large quantities are 
shipped to other counties. Irish potatoes 
and grass are grown with success. Live 
stock is profitable. 1 his is among the 
best wheat growing counties in the State. 

Fruits — Peaches, apples, pears, grapes, 
plums and berries. 

Timbers — Black walnut, poplar, ash, 
gum, hickory, chestnut, wild cherry, elm 
and all the oaks. 

Minerals — Iron, gold and alum are 
found in this county.

CHATHAM COUNTY. 

AREA 800 Square Miles. 
Population 23,456; White 15,501, Colored 7955. 



Chatham County was organized in 
the year 1770, and named after the cele- 
brated English statesman, William Pitt. 
Earl of Chatham. 

PlTTSBORO, the county-seat, is 33 miles 
west of south from Raleigh. Population, 
580. 

Surface — This county is undulating, 
some parts almos' approaching mountain- 
ous. The uplands are susceptible of a 
high state of cultivation. The valleys 
along the streams are rich. 

Staples — Corn, cotton, wheat, oats, 
rye, tobacco, potatoes, peas, grasses and 
nearly every kind of vegetable, and laige 
quantities of butter, chickens and eggs. 

Fruits — Apples, peaches, pears, plums, 
apricots, melons and berries. 

Timbers — Oak, hickory pine, gum and 
ash. 

Water-power — There is an abundant 
water-power. Haw river enters the county 
at its northwestern boundary, and passes 
diagonally across, affording at almost 
every mile the finest water-power in the 
State. Deep river running through the 
western and southern portions of the 
county and Rocky river through the cen- 
tre, afford a series of water-powers unsur- 
passed. In fact, it is believed that the 
water-power of Chatham county is supe- 
rior to that of the whole State of Con- 
necticut.

CRAVEN COUNTY. 

Area 900 Square Miles. 
Population 19,729; White 6,662, Colored 13,067. 



Craven County was one of the origi- 
nal precincts of the Lords Proprietors, 
and derives its name from William, Earl 
of Craven, to whom, with others, the 
charter was granted by Charles II. 

Newbern, the county-seat, is named 
after Bern, in Switzerland, and is one of 
the oldest towns in the State; located at 
the junction of Neuse and Trent rivers, 
no miles east of Raleigh. Population, 
8,000. 

Surface. — This county is level. It 
is traversed by the Neuse river running 
from northwest to southeast. On both 
sides of the river there is much bottom 
land that produces heavy crops when well 
drained. The advantages of water trans- 
portation are fine. 

Staples. — Cotton and corn are the great 
staples. ShingLs and lumber are manu- 
factured profitably. Naval stores and fish 
are items of very considerable profit. New- 
bern is one of the finest fish-markets in 
the State. Truck-farming, of late years, 
has become extensive and profitable. 

Fruits. — Apples, peaches, pears, apri- 
cots, nectarines, figs, melons, and nearly 
every species of small fruit. 

Timbers. — Pine, cypress, poplar, gum, 
live oak, water oak, etc.

CUMBERLAND COUNTY. 

Area 900 Square Miles. 
Population 23,836; White 12,592, Colored 11,244. 



Cumberland County was formed in 
the year 1754 from the upper part of 
Bladen. It derives its name from the 
Duke of Cumberland, a popular and 
brave officer, at that time, in England. 

Favetteville. the county-seat, was 
settled in 1762, and was at first called 
Campbelltown, afterwards Cross Creek, 
and in 17S4 its name was changed to 
Fayetteville, in honor of General Lafay- 
ette. Fayetteville is located on the Cape 
Fear river; it is sixty miles west of south 
from Raleigh, and contains a population 
of 7,000. 

Surface. — Cumberland is situated on the 
Cape Fear river and tributaries; land gen- 
erally level, and much of it quite produc- 
tive when well drained — especially so along 
the streams. 

Staples. — Cotton and corn are the lead- 
ing staples. Naval stores are still pro- 
duced, but not as extensively as formerly, 
though still a source of considerable in- 
come to the county 

Fruits. — Pears, apples, peaches, apri- 
cots, grapes (the Tokay vineyards are in 
this county), all the small fruits and melons 
equal to any, perhaps, grown in the State. 

Timbers. — Pine in abundance, oak, gum, 
hickory, cypress, &c.

CURRITUCK COUNTY. 

Area 200 Square Miles. 
Population 6,476; White 4,496, Colored 1,980. 



Currituck County was one of the 
early precincts of the State, in 1729, when 
the Lords Proprietors surrendered their 
rights to the English Crown. It derives 
its name from a tribe of Indians who once 
inhabited and owned the county. It is 
situated in the extreme northeastern por- 
tion of the State, and is bounded on the 
north by the Virginia line, east by the 
Atlantic Ocean, south by the Albemarle 
Sound, and west by Camden county. 
The county, especially on Currituck 
Sound, is well adapted for truck-raising. 
Melons can be successfully grown from 
four miles above Court-House to Powell's 
Point — a distance of thirty-four miles. 
The fishing and ducking interest, from 
November until March, is a source of 
considerable revenue to the thirty-four 
miles territory above named, including 
the islands and beach. Her people have 
labored and paid taxes, paid taxes and 
labored again, to rid themselves of what 
has been known so long as the " canal 
debt," and this year's levy will put her 
out of debt. The taxes for all purposes 
are $1 on the hundred, which is quite a 
fall from $2.75 in 1SS0. Next year the 
county will only have to levy to defray 
her current expanses, which will be about 
fifty or sixty cents on the dollar. Wbh 
the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal and 
the N. S. Railroad, her shipping facilities 
are good; on ihe road her trucks, etc, 
can leave this evening and be in New 
York to-morrow morning. The people 
are a church-going people, and are in 
favor of free schools, but at this time her 
schools are languishing on account of "the 
debt;" however, from now she will not 
lag in the advancement of education. 
Moyock is quite a thriving little village 
on the N. S. Railroad. A company of 
men from New York are negotiating to 
buy thirty thousand acres of land in that 
vicin'ty; when that is consummated others 
will follow, and Currituck county will not 
be excelled in the State for her variety 
and productiveness of ^oil. 

1, Cukrituck Court-House, the county- 
seat, is beautifully located on Currituck 
Sound, and is 242 miles northeast from 
Raleigh. Population, including town- 
ship, 2,000. 

Surface. — Low, level, and soil rich 
The navigation advantages are very good. 



Staples. — Cotton, corn, and fish. Truck- 
ing for the Northern markets is extensively 
engaged in. Large quantities of live fowl 
are killed during the winter months, and 
find a ready sale at Norfolk and points 
farther North. 

Frtiits. — Apples, peaches, pears, ber- 
ries, melons and grapes in great profusion. 

Timbers. — Pine, cypress, juniper and 
gum.

DARE COUNTY- 

Area 270 Square Miles. 
Population 3,245; White 2.878, Colored 367. 



Dare County was organized in 1870, 
from Tyrrell, Hyde and Currituck, and 
was named in honor of Virginia Dare, the 
first white child born on the American 
Continent after its discovery by Columbus. 

ManteO, the county-seat, is 250 miles 
northeast from Raleigh, and derives its 
name from the chief of an Indian tribe 
that formerly occupied that portion of the 
State. Population of the town 175. 

Surface. — Dare county embraces a small 
area of high land, and large bodies of 
swamp and marsh. The surface is cut up 
by extensive collections of water; hence 
the principal occupation of the people is 
that of fishing. 

Nag's Head, on the east shore, is a 
noted summer resort. Education and en- 
terprise would make this one of the finest 
counties in the State. It is noted for its 
sea-breezes and healthfulness. The first 
English settlement was made here in 1584. 
Virginia Dare, the first white child born 
on this Continent, first saw the light of 
day in this county, hence the name; and 
the first religious services of this country 
were performed on the banks of the 
Roanoke Sound. 

Staples, — Fish form the great staple of 
this county. The product of this item is 
estimated at over two hundred thousand 
dollars per annum. Rogers & Etheridge 
alone did a business of some seventy-five 
thousand dollars in one year. Corn, sweet 
potatoes and scuppernong grapes grow 
finely. This is the native home of the 
scuppernong. 

Timbers. — Cypress, juniper, gum, wa- 
ter oak, live oak and others. 

Fruits. — Figs, apples, peaches, cran- 
berries and other small fruits.

DAVIE COUNTY. 

Area 300 Square Miles. 
Population 11,097; White 7,770, Colored 3,327. 



Davie County was formed in 1S36, 
from Rowan, and named in honor of 
Gen. Wm. R. Davie, a resident of Hali- 
fax county, who acted a prominent part 
in the Revolutionary War. 

Mocksville, the county-seat, is 120 
miles west of Raleigh, and contains a 
population of 525. It takes its name 
from the Mock family, who were promi- 
nent citizens of that portion of Rowan 
before the separation. 

Surface — Moderately uneven; well wa- 
tered by the Yadkin river and its tribu- 
taries. Soil rich; a fine farming country. 

Staples. — This is one of the finest 
wheat-growing counties in the State. Corn 
is grown largely. Grass is profitable. Of 
late years tobacco is grown with great 
success. Some cotton is raised, and the 
amount is increased yearly. 

Fruits are those common to the Mid- 
dle section of the State — apples, pears, 
peaches, plums, cherries, etc. The mel- 
ons of the Yadkin Valley are noted for 
their fine flavor. 

Timbers — Oak, hickory, elm, poplar, 
maple, and some walnut and pine.

DUPLIN COUNTY- 

Area 670 Square Miles. 
Population 18,771; White 10.586, Colored 8,185, 



Duplin County was formed in 1749, 
from the upper part of New Hanover 
county. Its early settlers were Irish, and 
the name reminded them of Dublin. 

KENANSVILLE, the county-seat, was 
named for the Hon. James Kenan, and is 
situated 75 miles southeast of Raleigh. 
Population, 528. 

Surface. — Duplin county is situated 
mostly on the east side of the Wilmington 
and Weldon Railroad, and on the head- 
waters of the Northeast Cape Fear river; 
it is level and much of the land good. 
The location and surface are such as to 
make it susceptible of a high state of cul- 
tivation. 

Staples. — Cotton is the great staple, 
and is cultivated with intelligence and 
marked success. Corn and sweet pota- 
toes are profitable crops. Naval stores 
are still produced in considerable quanti- 
ties, and some years bring in large amounts 
of money. The scuppernong grape is per- 
fectly at home here; is grown extensively, 
and of the finest kind. Of late years 
trucking is attracting considerable atten- 
tion. 

Fruits — Grapes, melons, apples, peaches, 
pears, and almost all the smaller fruits 
common to this latitude. 

Timbers — Long-leaf pine, oak, gum, 
cypress, dogwood, maple", etc.

260 BRANSON'S NORTH CAROLINA 

THE GLOBE WAREHOUSE, 

FOR THE SALE OF LEAF TOBACCO, 

IS ONE OF THE INSTITUTIONS OF MOUNT AIRY OF WHICH 
THE PEOPLE MAY WELL BE PROUD. 

It is situated on Main street, and is owned by a joint stock company, incorporated 
under the laws of North Carolina. It is now under the management of Joseph W. 
Ashby and his paitners, as lessees. It was not completed until February 1st, 1887, 
and the first sale in it was had on that day, since which time it has enjoyed a liberal 
patronage. The building is a two-story brick, 160 feet by 70 feet. Contiguous to 
it, and belonging to the Globe Warehouse Company, is a vacant lot, 140 by 60 feet, 
suitable for a large tobacco factory, for which purpose it will be sold very cheaply. 
In addition to above, fronting on Main street, are two store-rooms in first story, 
suitable for good grocery business or general merchandise, which are for rent cheap.

eigh.

Norfolk is the second city in population in Virginia, and in the patt few years has 
rapidly increased in business and population. It has a population of 35,000, and 
within a radius of five miles from its market house are 75,000 people, while directly 
tributary to it is a population of 315,000. Norfolk's trade exhibit for 188S, in the 
various branches, reached sixty million of dollars. She is the third cotton port of 
the Atlantic Coast. 



THE VIRGINIAN AS AN ADVERTISING MEDIUM. 

The VIRGINIAN is Norfolk's leading journal, and is unrivalled in Tidewater Vir- 
ginia anH Eastern Carolina as an advertising medium. It ranks third, if not second, 
in circulation with any daily paper issued in Virginia and North Carolina. 

Its increase in circulation since 18S2 has kept pace with the growth of the city 
and progressive journalism in the growing and prosperous South. During the past 
year its circulation reached 1,068,279 Copies, as follows:

TESTIMONIALS. 



WINSTON CITY SCHOOLS.— Superintendents Office, ) 
Winston, N. C, March 27, 1889./ 
Messrs. Stewart Bros.: — Dear Sirs,— It affords me pleasure to say that the book 
you printed for me on the "Names of the Counties of North Carolina and the History 
Involved in Them," was very neatly and satisfactorily done, and I am glad to 
recommend your firm. Yours Very Truly, W. A. Blair, Superintendent Schools. 

Winston, N. C, March 25, 1889. 
Messrs. Stewart Bros., Winston, N. C. : 

Gentlemen, — The Library Catalogue of Winston Graded Schools, printed and bound 
by you, is a very creditable piece of workmanship, neat and tasty and hard to beat 
iii the State. Very truly, 

W. A. Whitaker, Chninnan of School Board. 

Messrs. Stewart Bros. -.—Dear Sirs,— The work you did in printing the Minutes 
of the Pilot Mountain Association was neat, tasteful and satisfactory. 

Respectfully, H. A. Brown, 

March 25, 1889. Pastor Baptist Church, Winston, A T . C 

Oak Ridge Institute, N. C, December 14, 1888. 
Messrs. M. I. & J. C. Stewart, Winston, N. C. : 

Sirs,— Print and send us 300 more Catalogues as soon as you can — by the 18th at out' 
side. Like them splendidly. Yours truly, J. A. & M. H. Holt. 

Durham, N. C, March 25, 1889. 
Messrs. M. I. A J. C. Stewakt, Winston, N. C. : 

Gents,— The Winston City Directory printed by you gives entire satisfaction and is 
equal to any, and far superior to many books printed by New York firms for us. We 
send by express to-day copy for our Durham, N. C, City Directory— which we know 
will receive prompt and careful attention. We also wish you to print our Winston 
and Salem Directory for this year. Respectfully, E. F. Turner & Co., 

Directory Publishers, 217 Eltn Street, Yonkers, A'. Y. 

A Neat Job.— Turner's Directory of Winston-Salem lor this year is one of the best 
arranged and printed books of that kind that we have yet seen. The selection of type 
is in good taste, the printing clean, clear and neat, and everything about it is of the 
highest artistic order, showing that the Stewart Bkothers, of this city, at whose 
office it was printed, are master workmen, who thoroughly understand their busi- 
ness.— Twin-VUy Daily, Mai/ 15th, 1889. 

A Neat Piece of Work.— We have been shown the Catalogue of the Siler City 
Thompson School, a 100-page pamphlet, published by Messrs. M. L& J. C. Stewart, 
Job Printers of Winston. It is an admirable piece of work— indeed, we have seen 
nothing of the kind printed in this State which surpasses it in neatness of typograph- 
ical execution. — Winston Sentinel, June 13th, 1889. 

The following from the Mt. Airy Xeivs shows that Winston talent is appreciated 
elsewhere as well as at home. This enterprising firm is doing an immense amount of 
work, and of a class that cannot be excelled by any printing establishment in North 
Carolina: "We have seen and examined some job work executed at Stewarts' 
.Lob Office, Winston, for Messrs. J. K. Reynolds, Fulton & Bro., Geo. B. Yates, J. V. 
Mitchell, Jos. W. Ashby and others of this town, and we know of no office in tne 
State that can produce better specimens than these. The work is well done."— Tuin- 
CUy Daily, July 29th, 1889.

FORSYTH COUNTY. 

AREA 340 Square Miles. 
Population 18,070; White 13,442, Colored 4,628. 



Forsyth County was formed in 1848, 
from Stokes county, and was named in 
honor of Col. Benjamin Forsyth, of Ger- 
man town, Stokes county. 

Winston is the county-seat. Popula- 
tion (estimated) 8,500. 

Salem, settled by the Moravians over 
one hundred years ago, and adjoining 
Winston, contains a population estima- 
ted at 3,500. 

Surface — Moderately hilly, and wa- 
tered by many small streams. Much of 
the soil is good and susceptible of a high 
state of cultivation. 

Staples — Corn, wheat, oats and dried 
fruit. Tobacco has recently become one 
of the leading crops, and the large num- 
ber of tobacco factories and warehouses in 
Winston has given an impetus to the cul- 
ture of tobacco in the county almost un- 
precedented. Forsyth is one of the finest 
fruit-growing counties in the State. 

The Fruits of this county are apples, 
peaches, pears, apricots, nectarines, cher- 
ries, plums and the small fruits. The 
export of dried blackberries from this 
county is immense. 

Timbers of this county consist of oak, 
hickory, poplar, walnut, pine, chestnut, 
and other kinds common to the Piedmont 
counties of the State.

FRANKLIN COUNTY. 

Area 420 Square Miles. 
Population 20,829 ; White 9,474, Colored 11,355. 



Franklin County was formed in 1779, 
from what was, prior to that time, Bute 
county. In that year the General Assembly 
obliterated the name of Bute and formed 
from it territory which now constitutes 
Franklin and Warren counties. Franklin 
was named in honor of the philosopher 
and sage, Benjamin Franklin, who ren- 
dered his country important services in a 
civil capacity during the Revolution. 

LouiSBURG, the county-seat, is situated 
on Tar river, 35 miles northeast from 
Raleigh, and has a population of 965. 

It was a common saying of this part of 
the State during the Revolution, " There 
are no Tories in Bute." 

Surface. — Franklin county is situated 
on Tar river and tributaries; is mode- 
rately undulating, well watered and soil 
generally good. It is nearly on the 
dividing line between the cotton and to- 
bacco sections; is a pleasant country and 
has a thrifty population. 

Staples. — Both cotton and tobacco are 
produced successfully, and may be called 
the leading staples. Corn, wheat, oats, 
clover, grasses, and sweet potatoes are 
profitable crops. 

Fruits — Apples, peaches, pears and the 
small fruits, melons, etc. 

Timbers — Oak, hickory, pine, gum, 
beech, walnut, etc.

gow county. It was named in compli- 
ment to Gen Naihaniel Greene, who was 
one of the bravest, most sagacious and 
most successful officers of the Revolution, 
and the saviour of the South from the 
invasions of the British. He was a native 
of Rhode Island, where he was born in 
1741. Glasgow (now Gieene county) and 
Lenoir originally formed Dobbs county, 
extinct since 1791 . 

Snow Hill, the county-seat, is situ- 
ated 76 mil-s east of Raleigh, and has a 
population of 5 10

Contentnea creek, and is level; lands rich 
and very productive when well drained. 
The population is a thrifty one, and the 
section is a good one for agriculture. 

Staples — Corn, cotton, sweet potatoes 
and naval stores. Cotton is grown sys- 
tematically and with great success; aho 
wheat, oats and rye are being grown suc- 
cessfully. 

F}u;ts — Apples, peaches, pears, grapes, 
melons, plums and other small fiuits. 

Timbeis — Pine, oak, hickory, ash and

GUILFORD COUNTY. 

AREA 680 Square Miles. 
Population 23,584; White 16,886, Colored 6,69s. 



Guilford County was formed in 1770, 
from Rowan and Orange counties It was 
called in compliment of Lord Noith, who, 
in 1770, succeeded the Duke of Grafton 
as First Lord of the Treasury and Prime 
Minister. He was heir to the title of 
Guilford and eventually succeeded to it as 
Earl of Guilford. 

Greensboro, the county-seat, is 82 
miles northwest of Raleigh, at the June 
tion of lhe Richmond & Danville and Cape 
Fear & Yadkin Valley Railroads, and was 
named in honor of General Nathaniel 
Green. Population (estimated) 8,125. 

Surface — Pleasantly undulating — hilly 
but not mountainous; soil good, water- 
power very fine. Deep river and other 
smaller streams supply abundant water, 
and the central location makes it a desir- 
able county for residence. It contains a 
thrifty population. 

Staples — Tobacco, corn, wheat and 
fruits in abundance and in great perfec- 
tion. Several nurseries have been in ope- 
ration for many years and have accom- 
plished much for the interest of fruit-grow- 
ing. Grass-growing is also profitable. 

Fruits — Apples, pears, peaches, grapes, 
quinces, melons, plums, cherries and 
other small fruits. 

Timbers — Pine.oak, hickory and poplar.
