North Carolina-Tyrell County-November 9

North Carolina People, Places, and Things-November 9

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.

Tyrell County is the least populated county in North Carolina with an estimated 3500 residents in 2015. The reported population of the county in the 1790 census was 4500.  There is no growth taking place.

It’s county seat is Columbia and it was founded in 1729 when it was carved out of Camden, Currituck, and Pasquotank Counties.

Located on the “South Shore” of the Albemarle Sound, Tyrrell’s landscape consists of various marshlands, swamps, and bodies of water.


The county has been one of the least populated counties in North Carolina because the wet environment has always been a hindered transportation and prevented widespread home construction.

In 2013, the County became the last county in North Carolina to adopt the County Manager form of government.
