North Carolina-Perquimans County-September 3


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-September 3

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. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

Perquimans County according to Wikipedia means “land of beautiful women” and was coined by a sect of the Yeopim tribe, later becoming the ‘Perquiman’.  The county was originally created as Berkeley Precinct. It was renamed Perquimans Precinct around 1684 and gained county status in 1739.

Hertford, is the county seat of government in Perquimans, was established in 1758.  That makes it one of the oldest towns in the state.

Hertford is located in the northeastern corner of the state, and is part of North Carolina’s “Inner Banks” region, which is effectively a long string of barely-coastal towns and communities just a few miles away from the barrier island beaches. Adjacent to the Perquimans River, and subsequently the Albemarle Sound, the town is a small community with a big waterfront, which essentially leads to plenty of local charm and accompanying waterfront views.

In Hertford you will find classic Victorian and Georgian homes, and accommodating local shops and restaurants, that flank the banks of the Perquimans River.

Home below is located on Church Street in Hertford.

The county only has a population of around 13,000 residents with about 2,100 living in Hertford.
