North Carolina People, Places, and Things-February 20
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.
Camden County is North Carolina 4th least populous county with less than 10,000 residents. It also has one of the more unique geographic shapes of any of North Carolina’s 100 counties. It touches the Virginia State Line on it’s northern edge and runs to the Albemarle Sound.

Another quirk of Camden County is the county is the municipality. There are no other incorporated towns or cities in the county. Camden is the first and only consolidated city-county in the State of North Carolina, and it’s county seat is the Courthouse Township of Camden.
Camden County achieved this status in June of 2006, and became a Unified Government as of July 1, 2006.
