North Carolina-Chowan County-March 12


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-March 12

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.

Chowan County is one of North Carolina least populated counties with just over 14,000 residents. It is located in the Northeast part of the state bordered by the counties of Bertie, Hertford, Gates, and Perquimans. It gained county status in 1739 so it has a lot of history by North Carolina standards. Chowan County holds numerous structures that were constructed over 200 years ago.  Most of these historic sites exhibit Georgian architecture, a popular style in colonial times that stressed simplistic symmetry.

Chowan County outlined in red on state map. It has lots of water on its boundaries.

The county seat for Chowan is Edenton, NC. Edenton was the state’s first colonial capital, it was established in the late 17th century and incorporated in 1722. It also once had the distinction of North Carolina second largest port. Edenton sits on the Albemarle Sound and boast a population of around 5,000.

If you like quaint small towns situated on the water Edenton has a lot to offer.
