Miscellaneous Data

 

 

 

North Carolina became one of the original Thirteen Colonies and with the territory of South Carolina was originally known as the Province of Carolina. The northern and southern parts of the original province separated in 1729.

line

Originally settled by small farmers, sometimes having a few slaves, who were oriented toward subsistence agriculture, the colony lacked cities or towns.

line

Pirates menaced the coastal settlements, but by 1718 the pirates had been captured and killed.

line

During colonial times, Edenton served as the state capital beginning in 1722, and New Bern was selected as the capital in 1766.

line

In 1788 Raleigh was chosen as the site of the new capital, as its central location protected it from attacks from the coast. Officially established in 1792 as both county seat and state capital, the city was named after Sir Walter Raleigh, sponsor of Roanoke, the "lost colony" on Roanoke Island.
