Several eminent physicians have given 
it as their opinion that this place is the 
nwst desirable location for invalids lit the 
' States. 



Dr. a. N. BeXL, Editor American Sanitarian, says: "I find 
it difficult to conceive of any other place which so eminently 
comprehends all of the most desirable conditions for the estab- 
lishment of a WINTER HEALTH RESORT." 

Dr. W. C. Wile, Editor New England Medical Monthly 
and Past Surgeon General G. A. R., says: "Southern Pine: 
has all the qualifications of a genuine health resort.'' 

Dr. Wm. F. Waugh, until recently editor of the Medica.

How to IrLcach Southern Pines. 



Southern Pines is located on the Seaboard Air Line, in North 
Carolina. It is comparatively a new place, and should agents 
of railway lines not be able to give the proper directions, notify 
l\Ir. T. J. Anderson, General Passenger xA.gent Seaboard Air Line, 
Portsmouth, Va. All coupon ticket offices in the Northern, 
New England and Northwestern States are directed by their 
General Agents to sell winter excursion tickets to Southern 
Pines. If they refuse to sell tickets and check baggage through, 
(notify Mr. Anderson. 




NEAR SOUTHERN PINES, N. C. 



Eminent Physicians Endorse Southern Pines: 



Hozcard J 'a// Re/isst'lcar, Ph. D., M. D., Editor Medical Annals. — 
" Particular] }• valuable for those persons who are run down in health, 
and especially for those with consuming" tuberci:losis. " 

\V. Blair Slczvart, M. D., Instructor in the Philadelphia Medico-Chi- 
riirgical College. — "A natural sanitarium; the climate can be highly 
recommended; malaria is iinknown." 

W. a lViU\ A. A/., M. D.. LL. D., Past Surgeon General G. A. R.- 
'' Southern Pines has all the qualifications of a geniiine health resort." 

Dr. W. F. Waugh, Medical Writer, of Philadelphia. ~'\Q.o to South- 
ern Pines, inhale the aroma of the turpentine all day and all night, and 
recover vour health. " 



What the Leading Papers say : 

-^ ^ -^ *f 

New York World, February^ i8q2. — " The air is very dry and 
salubrious." 

New York Sun, July 6th, i8go. — "The contentment of the 
people is found in the fact that some member of about two-thirds 
of the families there have been afflicted, and comino^ to this 
place have found health. It is probably the most contented lot 
of Northern people to be found in the South." 



















NEAR SOUTHERN PINES, N C. 



Baltimore Sicn, February gth, i8gi. — "The enthusiasm with 
which all these Northern settlers speak of the climate, the 
country and its possibilities, is very striking. As to the bene- 
fits to health, there seems to be no manner of doubt. There is 
but one expression of opinion on that subject." 

Harper'' s Weekly, February 2ist, i8gi. — "Sandy soil and 
shadowing pines that give out health and healing whenever the 
wind moved their branches. Some one adventurous individual 
discovered this and came down from the North, and when he 
found himself better wrote to other sufferers, and brought so 
many of them to the Pines that there was soon a little colony." 



T he North Carolina 
College of Agriculture 
and Mechanic Arts 



This great State School of Technology was founded 
seven years ago, and the rapidity with which it has grown, 
and the rank it has taken among the leading institutions 
of the country [Harper'' s Magazine^ The Forum and the 
Cosmopolite i^ of New York, all bearing unsolicited witness 
to its me^^xt), furnish indubitable proof of the excellence 
of its worth, and of its value to the State. 

It offers to young men thorough courses in general Aca- 
demic Studies, Agriculture, Horticulture, Mechanical, 
Civil and Electrical Engineering, and in Applied Science, 
and its instruction is of the most practical character, its 
Lecture Rooms, Laboratories, Shops, Barn and Dairy 
being well equipped. Its Faculty of Instruction consists of 
nineteen men, specially trained for their work. Expenses 
are nominal, and many young men have opportunity to 
reduce the moderate cost to a still lower figure. This 
College is doing a great work for young men, and its 
graduates are all well placed. 

THE TOTAL COST PER SESSION, INCLUDING BOARD, IS: 

To Students holding County Scholarships, $ 91.00 
To all other Students, I2I.OO 

The Next Session will open September 3d, 1896.

THE SEABOARD AIR LINE 

Traverses the Beautiful Piedmont Country of the Carolinas and Georgia, and offers 

the Best Facilities of Transit between the Atlantic Ports and the 

South, West, Pacific Coast and Mexico. 



Pursuing a Wise and Liberal Policy, its Management Seeks the Larger Development 

of the Territory on its Lines, which means the addition 

of Incalculable Wealth to the South. 

Practical Farmers are Especially invited to settle along its Lines. Lands here 

combine with Cheapness, Extraordinary Advantages of Soil, Climate, 

Water, Timber, Stone and Convenient Markets. 

Superadded to the excellent service on its own railway, the Seaboard Air 
Line commands the sviperior advantages afforded by a splendid and perfect 
system of water communications extending in close connection with its trains 
to and from the principal nortliern cities. The magnificent harbor of Norfolk- 
Portsmouth is the converging and departing point for scores of the finest 
steamers in the -world. The vessels of the larger companies are splendid sea- 
going steamships elegantly furnished for the conveyance of passengers, with 
stiperior accommodations for the transfer of large cargoes and consignments. 
Daily these vessels are moored alongside the numerous wharves of the Sea- 
board. 

The advantages of such a complete and comprehensive water system work- 
ing in harmony with so prompt and reliable a land carrier as the Seaboard 
Air Line, are obvious. Fruits, berries, melons, garden truck and perishable 
stviff reach their destination in better condition, and will command better 
prices than if jolted and pounded by railway transport over the same distance. 

The Seaboard Air Line Territory. 

Dense groves of pine and hardwood trees, heavily clothed with verdure and 
clinging vines, alternate with fields of tobacco, cotton, corn, peas and oats. 
The soil, no matter how light or sandy, is notably rich in the elements of 
luxuriant vegetation, and two-tliirds of it still open to cultivation. 

The Piedmont section, that high, undulating jslateau which separates the 
lowlands of the coast from the western or mountain section, shares witli Italy 
its characteristic sunny skies and delightful climate. It is watered by several 
large rivers, many creeks and innumerable living springs, while the average 
rain-fall (from forty to fifty-two inches) is so seasonable and equally dis- 
tributed that droughts of serious detriment are unknown. 

Cotton, corn, tobacco, fruits and vegetables yield abundant crops in this 
territory, but certain portions of it are peculiarly adopted to special forms of 
plant life. The trucking lanls around Portsmouth for ten miles out (and it 
might be made fift}" miles) ct)nstitute a series of rich vegetable gardens, the 
sales from which approximate $8,000,000 annually. The same field here will 
produce five crojis in one season. After kale is shipped, cucumbers and peas 
are planted in alternate rows. When they are marketed and the vines plowed 
under, grass springs up and a crop of hay is gathered, after which fall potatoes 
are dropped. The strawberry crop is also early and profitable. 

For sixty miles along the road from Wilmington, truck farmers make two 
crops of Irish and sweet potatoes, peas, beans, cabbage, tomatoes and peanuts 
per year from the same land, the season coming in between that of Florida 
and Norfolk. In the vicinity of Raleigh and Charlotte and other cities, as well 
as in many flourishing smaller towns, trucking in connection with poultry 
raising is very profitable, with future possibilities practically unlimited. 

Tobacco and Hop Lands. 

The Seaboard Air Line passes through the finest tobacco lands in the 
South, on which the most wonderful results have been attained. The heart 
of this paradise, producing the famous "golden leaf" (the best and highest 



Lvi BRANt^ON'S N. C. DIRECTORY. 



priced grade in the word ) is penetrated by the railway lines from Weldon to 
Raleigh, with the forty-two mile branch from Henderson to Durham and by 
the branch lines to Warrenton and Louisburg. 

The }'ield of the " golden leaf and the prices it commands are remarkable. 
From ijf^OO to $450 an acre is an average profit. Improved farms have reim- 
bursed purchasers their entire cost from the profits of the first season's crop. 

Hop growing, a new and important industrj'- in North Carolina, has proved 
a success, and is destined to fill a formost place among useful products. Sub- 
jected to everj' known test by experienced hop growers, it has been found that 
in certain Carolina fields adjacent to the Seaboard Air Line the yield is equal 
to that in the west, while it is richer in lupuline and possesses a much finer 
aroma than any other American hop. The cost of production is less than one- 
half that of New York, and not more than half the cost in the most favored 
localities on the Pacific coast. Hop culture has come south to staJ^ 

This middle section blends the soils of both the eastern and western divis- 
ions, and is so diversified that, with its favorable climatic conditions, it offers 
the widest range of agricultural possibilities. It is here that the culture of 
cotton is largely extended, and coal, building-stone and minerals are found. 
Coal abounds, but its mining on a commercial scale has been limited to Egypt, 
in Chatham county, where the annual output is 350,000 tons of a quality 
superior to the Pocahontas and manj^ other coals. 

Cotton Manufacturing. 

In North Carolina 149 cotton mills are now in operation, representing 19,000 looms and 
756,000 spindles. But these cotton and wool mills, successful as they have proved, are 
but the vanguard of what is to follow. The Manufacturers' Record (which is good 
authority on all southern interests) declares that " the largest future possibilities for the 
profitable development of cotton industries are located in the Piedmont section in the 
Carolinas and Georgia, which is tributary to the Seaboard Air Line System." The 
territory thus outlined is about 500 miles long by 100 to 150 miles wide, covering an area of 
50,000 to 60,000 square miles. Within this circumscribed limit, the Record locates the"future 
situs of the cotton manufacturing of the south, and 'that mean' [it adds] so far as human 
foresight can predict, the future situs of the cotton manufacturing of the world." Among 
the reasons adduced in support of this prediction and belief are: Elevation above sea level; 
abundant andcheap water power and coal; a plentiful supply of native American opera- 
tives ;cost of labor, because of low cost of living; unsurpassed healthfulness; cotton supply 
at hand, and cheap and abundant transportation to the markets of the world." 

Fruits and Fruit Lands. 

Peaches, pears, plums, apricots, flgs, apples, grapes and berries grow profusely all over 
the Carolinas and Georgia. It has been found ,by practical experience, that the elevated 
sand-hill region in the long-leaf pine belt between Sanfordand Hamlet, on the Seaboard 
Air Line, is a most prolific producer of fruits of various kinds. The peaches, pears, 
plums anil grapes of the Niagara and Deleware variety, and blackberries, make large 
yields, which are distingusined alike for their size, firm texture and delicious flavor. 
Orchards a ud vineyards have been planted at Southern Pines, Manly and Pine Bluff, and 
the fruitage! has brought the highest prices from Northern dealers. One farm of 360 acres, 
within three miles of Southern Pines, mostly planted in peaches, has returned its owner 
this season a profit of S8,063.51 over all expenses. Orchards of less size have done as well 
in proportion. The net profits of the grape yield were aLso more than satisfactory. The 
first Delaware shipments this season sold in New York at twenty cents a pound. Black 
berries produced 3,000 to 5,000 quarts per acre, on which the profit was four to six cents a 
quart. The net profit on grapes was five cents per pound. The "scuppernong" grape is 
indigenous, and, like a banyan, spreads over an immense area. It is not a table grape, 
but the wine from it can hardly be excelled for body and flavor. 

Cereals and Grasses, Sanitary Resorts, Etc. 

Though cotton, tobacco, garden truck, and (latterly) fruits are the leading money crops. 
North Carolina, in proportion to her population, has not lagged in the production of 
cereals and grasses. In 1891 the harvest of rye from 13,110 acres was 478,017 bushels; of 
hay, 164,525 acres, 228,561 tons; of potatoes, 17,955 acres, 1,113,210 bushels: of wheat, 69o,147 
acres, 3,475,72t bushels; of corn, 2,259,663 acres, 22,959,484 oushels, and of oats from .527,892 
acres, 5,754,024 bushels. This total will be largely exceeded, in some instances doubled, 
In the summarized reports for 1895. 

Almost the entire State of North Carolina is one vast sanitarium. Scores of places on 
the Seaboard Air Line are welcome resorts to those in starch of rest and recreation. 
The odors of the pine forests are balsam for sore lungs. Wild game and flsh In most 
localities tempt the sportsman. The summer temperature cooled by ocean breezes 
blowing inland, is never excessively hot, and the nights are refreshingly cool. Any ten- 
dency to extreme cold in the winter season is .sensibly modified by the Gulf Stream. 
The climate is at all seasons exhilarating and soothing, invigorating and mild; a happy 
medium between the rigorous Northern winters and the enervating summers of the far 
South. Other sanitary accessories are numerous. Mineral springs abound everywhere, 
many of them noted far and near for their medicinal efficacy. Southern Pines, by 
reason of Its altitude, perfect drainage, sandy soil, pure water and curative ozone, exhaled 
frona long leaf pines, is especially favored, both as a resort and permanent abiding place. 
Numerous summer visitors go to localities in the western section and find health in its 
mountain air, forests and streams. ,. v, i.^

Annals, Albany, N. Y. ; Dr. W. Blair Stewart, A. M., M. D., 
Professor in the Philadelphia Medico-Chirurgical College; Dr. 
Geo. Taylor Stewart, of the New York Medical Times, and 
Superintendent of Ward's Island Hospital. 

Their report as to health resorts gives Southern Pines, N. C, 
the lead. Following is an extract from their report: 

"For persons whose health requires a mild winter climate. 
Southern Pines, because of the dryness of its soil, its elevation 
above sea-level, the invigorating quality of its atmosphere and 
its accessibility, presents natural advantages that highly com- 
mend it to the favorable attention of the medical profession." 



Prominent Medical Journals Commend 
SoutherQ Pines. 

Homeopathic Physician, of Philadelphia, Pa. — "Prominent physicians 
have visited the place for investigation, and without a single exception 
say it is the best. " 

Cincinnati Medical Jo ta'?ia I, Apj'il, 1894. — "Thousands of Northern 
invalids have visited the place, and many remarkable cures have been 
effected." 

The Prescription, April, jSg4. — " Its bound to prove a ]Mecca for people 
suffering from pulmonar\' complaints." 

Southern Medical World, November, iSgj.—^'A new winter health 
resort, * * * the best in the United States." 

The Sanitarian, March, iSg4. — '' In soil and climate, Nature seem.s to 
have made it an ideal place. The air is dry, balmy, balsamic and ozonic. " 




SOUTHERN PlNES-HOME PARLOR. 

The Medical Times and Register, March, 18^4 —"As soon as the place 
becomes better known, it will prove the most popular health resort m the 
country." 

New York Polyclinic, March, /<S"97.— "Situated in the centre of the 
renowed long-leaf pine belt, famous alike for its elevation, its health- 
giving balsamic odors, and its absolute freedom from malaria. There is 
absolutely no moisture in the atmosphere. The hotels are first-class and 
reasonable in their charges." 

Philadelphia Times and Register, September, rS^^.— " Whatever may be 
the dangers of infection in the older resorts, there is none at Southern 
Pines. " 

New England Medical Monthly.—'' One point impressed me at once— 
the desire to sleep. It was said by the people who were there for their 
health, that the desire for sleep for the first two or three weeks is almost 
irresistable. Rest, blessed rest, gives Nature a chance to get in her fine 
work."

AREA. 520 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 25,048, WHITE, 18.422; COLORED, 6,626. 



O 

O 



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 
Cirolina Regiment in the Continental 
Army. 

Colonel Buncombe raised a regiment, 
fed, clothed and drilled them at his 
own expense. He was killed in the 
first battle in which he was engaged. 
He nor his heirs ever received any pay. 
Gen, Vance offered a bill in Congress 
to appropriate $3,500 for a monument, 
which was refused. 

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 G )v. Simuel Ashe, of New 
Hanover, and was originally called 
Morristown. Its elevation is 3,350 feet 
above sea- level. 

The population is about 13,000, in- 
cluding suburbs, and it is one of the 
most noted summer and winter resorts 
in the S mth. 

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

Surface — Buncombe county is sit- 
uated on the west side of the Blue 
Ridge, and occupies a beautiful rolling 
country down the Swannanoi 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 tim- 
ber, even on the sides of the moun- 
tains, indicates. The scenery is en- 
chanting — the air invigorating. 

Staples — Corn, wheat, rye, oats and 
live stock. Tobacco is now being 
grown successfully, 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, 
poplar, 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. 
Mineral and iron springs abound. The 
water-power is unsurpassed.

BRANSON'S NORTH CAROLINA 



CARTERET COUNTY. 

AREA, 520 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION. 10.825; White, 8.528; Colored 2,291. 



Carteret County was one of the 
original precincts of the Lords Propria- 1 
tors, and was called in honor of one of 
the Lords, Sir George Cartaret. It bor- 
ders on the Atlantic Ocean for a dis- 
tance of 75 miles, and is so near to the 
Gulf Stream as to make the climate 
quite equable all the year round. 

Beaufort, the county-seat, is on 
Beaufort harbor, and is a town of grow- 
ing importance. It is a delightful 
summer resort, 144 miles east of Ral- 
eigh, 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 popula- 
tion of 1 ,365, and is a charming sea- 
side home. 

Surface— 1\ie land is low and level, 
much of it in swamps and marshes. It 
extends up and down the sound for 
seventy miles. A portion of the county 
in narrow strips, called The Banks, lies 
between the sound and the ocean. 
Much of the swamp is very rich, and 
very productive when well drained. 

Staples— Theie are some very fine 
cotton lands in this county. The mois- 
ture 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 quantities of superior quality. 
The fisheries are extensive and often 
very valuable. 

The last battle fought in the State 
with the Indians was fought in 1713, 
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 the Core 
Indians, who inhabited this county. 

Fruits— Yigs, apples, peaches, pears, 

grapes and melons to great perfection. 

Timbers— Live oak, long-leaf pine, 

cedar, cypress, ash, gum and juniper.

MARY POTTER MEMORIAL SCHOOL, 

OXFORD, N. C. 

The object of the School is to prepare colored young men and women for 
the practical duties of life by training the hands, heart and head— the hands to 
do with might and skill what they find to do, the heart to obey God's law, and 
the head to think. 

The School is named in honor of the late Mrs. B. F. Potter, of Schenectady, 
N. Y., through whose influence the work was started. 

The School is under the direct control of the Freedmen's Board, through 
whose hands come all donations, or who will be informed of all donations that 
come direct to us. It is also under the control of a local Board of Directors 
and Advisers. 

It is supported by the Freedmen's Board, by personal friends through the 
Freedmen's Board, by the students, and by the people of both races here on 
^^e field. Rev. G. C. SHAW, A. M., Principai,.

BRANSON'S NORTH CAROLINA 



CASWELL COUNTY. 

AREA. 400 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 13,028; White 6.639. Colored 6,389. 



Caswell County was created 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. 

Swr/ace— 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 celebrated far and rear. Wheat. 
corn and oats grow finely, but are not 
considered so profitable as tobacco. 

Fruits— Apple?, peaches, pears, and 
all the small fruitp. melons. 

Timbers —Oak, hickory, walnut, pop- 
lar, pine and various other kinds com- 
mon to the middle part of the State.

GENERAL PRINTERS, 

HICKORY, N. C. 

The Press and Carolinian is bright, crisp, breezy 
and pungent. Is a thoroughbred Democratic newspaper, 
published every Thursday. It is read by the people — 
also by the other side. 

Hickory is a looming — not booming — young city, and 
is a competitive point, and the nucleus of nine counties. 
Think of it ! Pretty good for a weekly newspaper of any 
sort of " git up and git." 

Aftvertisii Rates Very Reasoiialile for the Senrice ! 

This newspaper has a vein, or streak of humor permeat- 
ing its interior, which has to be appreciated to be acknowl- 
edged. It always trusts to the public to see the point. 
They know as much about it as we do. Try a sample 
copy. Write for it.

CATAWBA COUNTY. 

AREA 440 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 18.689; White 16,073, Colored 2,616. 



Catawba County was cut off from 
Lincoln county in 1843, and takes its 
name from the beautiful river which 
forms its northern boundary. 

Newton, the county-seat, is directly 
on the Western North Carolina Kail- 
road, and is 178 miles west of Raleigh. 
Population 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 un- 
even, and most of it quite productive; 
it is well watered, and plenty of water- 
power for immense macninery. Cataw- 
ba is a prosperous county, out of debt, 
taxes low, and money in the treasury 
—a desirable place to settle. The cele- 
brated Sparkling Catawba Springs are 
in this county. 

Staples— Corn, cotton and wheat are 
the great staples, and large quantities 
are 8hipp<?d to other counties. Irish 
potatoes and grass are grown with suc- 
cess. Live stock is profitable. This is 
among the best wheat growing coun- 
ties in the State. 

Fruits — Peaches, apples, pears, ber- 
ries, grapes, plums. 

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

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

BRANSON'S NORTH CAROLINA 



CHATHAM COUNTY. 

AREA. 800 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 25,413, WHITE,J7,2l4 ; COLORED, 8,799. 



CHA.THAM County was organized in 
the year 1770, and named after the eel 
ebrated English statesman, William 
Pitt, Earl of Chatham. 

PiTTSBORO, the county seat, is 33 
miles southvpest of Raleigh. Popula- 
tiorr, 588. 

Sur/ace— This county is undulating, 
some parts almost approaching moun- 
tainous. The uplands are susceptible 
of a high state of cultivation. The 
valleys along the streams are rich. 

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

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

Timbers— Odk, hickory, pine, gum 
and ash. 

Water-power— Th^x^ is an abundant 
water-power. Haw river enters the 
county at its northwestern boundary, 
an 1 passes diagonally across, affording 
at almost every mile the finest water- 
power in the State. Deep river, run- 
ning through the western and south- 
ern portions of the county, and Rocky 
river through the centre, afford a series 
of water-powers unsurpassed. In fact, 
it is believed that the water-power of 
Chatham county is superior to that of 
the whole State of Connecticut.

GRAVEN COUNTY. 

AREA. 900 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 20,533; White 7.175, Colored 13.358. 



Craven County was one of the 
original precincts of the Lord's Pro 
prietors, 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; loca- 
ted at the junction of Neuse and Trent 
rivers, 110 miles east of Raleigh. Pop 
ulation, estimated, 9,000. 

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 
transportation are very fine. 

Staples— Cot\oi\ and corn are the 
great staples. Shingles and lumber 
are manufactured profitably. Naval 
stores and fish are items of very con- 
siderable profit. Newbern is one of 
the finest fish markets in the State. 
Truck-farming, of late years, has be 
come extensive and profitable. 

Frmfs.— Apples, peaches, pears, ap- 
ricots, nectarines, figs, melons, and 
nearly every species of small fruit. 

Tmbers.— Pme,cypress,poplar,gum, 
live oak, white oak, etc.

CUMBERLAND COUNTY. 

AREA. 900 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 27,293, WHITE. 14.952; COLORED, 12.341. 



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

Fayetteville, the county-seat, was 
settled in 1762, and was at first called 
Campbelltown, afterwards Cross Creek, 
and in 1784 its nmie was changed to 
Fayetteville, in honor of General La 
fa -eite. Fayetteville is located on the 
Cape Fear river; it is sixty miles west 
of south from Raleigh, and contains a 
population of 8,000. 

Surface — Cumberland is situated on 
the Cape Fear river and tributaries; 
land generally level, a d much of it 
quite productive when well drained — 
especially so along the streams. 

Staples — Cotton and corn are the 
leading staples. Naval stores are still 
pr iduced, but not as extensively as 
formerly, though still a source of con- 
siderable income to the county. 

Fruits — Pears, apples, peaches, apri- 
cos, 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, etc.

BRANSON'S NORTH CAROLINA 



CURRITUCK COUNTY. 

AREA. 200 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 6,747; White 4,731, Colored 2,016. 



Currituck County was one of the 
early precincts of the State, in 1729, 
when the Lords Proprietors surrend- 
ered their rights to the English Crown. 
It derives its name from a tribe of In- 
dians who once inhabited and owned 
the county. It is situated in the ex- 
treme northeastern portion 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 the court 
house to Powell's Point — a distance 
of thirty-four miles. The fishing and 
ducking interests, from November 
until March, is a source of consid- 
erable revenue to the thirty four miles 
of territory above named, including the 
islands and beach. With the Albe- 
marle and Chesapeake Canal and the 
N. S. Railroad, her shipping facilities 
are good; on the i*oad her trucks, etc., 
can leave this evening and be in New 
York to-morrow morning. Moyock is 
quite a thriving little village on the N. 
S. Railroad. 

Currituck Court House, the county 
seat, is beautifully located on Curri- 
tuck Sound, and is 242 miles northeast 
from Raleigh. Population, including 
township, 2,000. 

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

Staples. — Cotton, corn, and fish. 
Trucking for the nordiern markets is 
extensively engaged in. Large quan- 
tities of live fowl are killed during the 
winter months, and find a ready sale 
at Norfolk and points farther north. 

Fruits. — Apples, peaches, pears, ber- 
ries, melons and grapes in great profu- 
sion. 

Timbers, — Pine, cypress, juniper and 
gum.

BRANSON'S NORTH CAROLINA 



DARE COUNTY. 

AREA 160 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION: 3,768; White 3,362 ; Colored 406. 



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 Amer- 
ican 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 bod- 
ies of swamp at d marsb. 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 
enterprise would make thia one of the 
finett counties m the State. It is noted 
for its sea breezes and htalthfulness. 
The first English settlement was made 
here in 1584. Virginia Dare, the first 
white child born on this Contment, 
first saw the light of day lu this county, 
hence the name; and the first religious 
services of this country were performed 
on the banks of Roanoke Sound. 

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

Timbers. — Cypress, juniper, gum, 
water oak, live oak and others. 

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

Forsyth County was formed in 
1848, from Stokes county, and was 
named in honor of Colonel Benjamin 
Forsyth, of Germanton, Stokes Co. 

Winston is the county-seat. Popula- 
tion (estimated) 13,500. 

Salem, settled by the Moravians over 
one hundred years ago, and adjoining 
Winston contains a population esti- 
mated at 5,500. 

jSrtr/ace— 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 
number of tobacco factories and ware 
houses in Winston has given an impe- 
tus to the culture of tobacco in the 
county almost unprecedented. Forsyth 
is one of the finest fruit-growing coun- 
ties in the State. 

The Fruits of this county are apples, 
peaches, pears, apricots, nectarines, 
cherries, 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.

BRANSON'S NORTH CAROLINA 



FRANKLIN COUNTY. 

AREA 420 SQUARE MILES. 
[POPULATION 21,072; White 10.737, Colored 10,335. 



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 rendered his 
country important services in a civil 
capacity during the Revolution. 

LouiSBURG, the county seat, is situ- 
ated on Tar river, 35 miles northeast 
from Raleigh, and has a population of 
1,200. 

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 moder- 
ately undulating, well watered and 
soil generally good. It is nearly on the 
dividing line between the cotton and 
tobacco Fections; 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 pota- 
toes are profitable crops. 

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

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

GATES COUNTY. 

AREA, 360 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 10,246; White. 5,533 Colored 4,713. 



Gates County was formed in 1779, 
from Hertford, Chowan and Perqui- 
mans counties. It was named after 
General Horatio Gates, the victorious 
commander at Saratoga in 1777. 

Gatesville, the county-seat, is situ- 
ated 180 miles northeast from Raleigh, 
and has a population of 300. 

Surface. — Low, level, and soil rich; 
lies north and east of the Chowan river. 
This is really a desirable county, and 
its proximity to the Norfolk and Balti- 
more markets will always insure abun- 
dant reward to the agi'iculturist. 

Staples. — Corn and cotton are great 
staples of Gates county. Sweet pota- 
toes, fish and naval stores are items of 
pecuniary profit. 

Fruits. — Grapes, melons, peaches, 
pears, apples, plums and the small 
fruits generally. Scuppernong grapes 
are here at home. 

Timbers, — Juniper, cypress, sweet 
and black gums, pine, cak and a va 
riety of the shrubs.

GUILFORD COUNTY. 

AREA, 680 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION, 27,868; White 19,645, Colored 8,223. 



Guilford County was formed in 
1770, from Rowan and Orange coun- 
ties. It was called in compliment of 
Lord North, 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 83 
miles northwest of Raleigh, at the 
junction of the Richmond & Danville 
and Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley Rail- 
roads, and was named in honor of Gen- 
eral Nathaniel Green. Population (es- 
timated) 9,000. 

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 desirable county for residence. It 
contains a thrifty population. 

Staples — Tobacco, corn, wheat and 
fruits in abundance and in great per- 
fection. Several nurseries have been 
in operation for many years and have 
accomplished much for the interest of 
fruit-growing. Grass-growing is also 
profitable. 

Fruits — Apples, pears, peaches, cher- 
ries, grapes, quinces, melons, plums, 
and other small fruits. 

Tmbers— Pine, oak, hickory and 
poplar,

HALIFAX COUNTY. 

AREA 680 SQUARE MILES. 
POPULATION: 24,868; White 19,645; Colored 5,223. 



Halifax County was formed in 
1758, from Edgecombe county, and in 
this year the court house for the coun- 
ties of Edgecombe, Granville and 
Northampton was moved from Enfield 
to the town of Halifax. It derives its 
name from the Earl of Halifax, who in 
1758 was the first Lord of the Board of 
Trades. 

Halifax, the county-seat, is 83 miles 
northeast from Raleigh, on the west 
bank of the Roanoke river, and also on 
the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad. 
Population 500. 

Scotland Neck, 21 miles southeast of 
Halifax, has a population of 1,400. 

Surface — This county is located on 
the west side of the Roanoke river; 
generally level and soil rich. Conve- 
nient railroad and river transportation 
make it very desirable for farmer.-^. 
This is doubtless one of the finest coun- 
ties in the State. 

Staples — Cotton is the great staple. 
Corn and sweet potatoes are profitable 
crops, and tobacco is grown success- 
fully in the northern part of the coun- 
ty. Plenty of water-power and timber. 

Fruits — Apples, peaches, pears, cher- 
ries, grapes, plums, melons and a great 
variety of small fruits. 

Timbers — Pine, oak, hickory, poplar, 
maple, cypress and juniper.
