North Carolina-Beaufort County-January 23


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-January 23

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

One of North Carolina oldest counties is Beaufort County. It was first known as Pamptecough Precinct and was formed out of the larger Bath County in 1705.  By 1712, the county received its formal name, which is attributed to Henry Somerset, Duke of Beaufort, and one of North Carolina’s Lords Proprietors.

Bath county was established in 1696 and was abolished in 1739. Even before the county earned it name in 1712 there were English explorers trekked across what is now Beaufort County. Those explorers established permanent settlements by the 1690s.  One such settlement grew into Bath, the state’s first incorporated town. Bath was incorporated in 1705 and it’s census population in 2010 was 249.

The county seat of Beaufort County is Washington, NC. An interesting thing about Beaufort County is that Beaufort NC is not located inside its boundaries. Beaufort NC is located in Carteret County.

Another North Carolina quirk similar to Beaufort is that of Rockingham, NC not being located in  Rockingham County NC. Rockingham NC is the county seat of Richmond, NC.
