North Carolina, one of the original thirteen colonies, is known as the “Old North State” and the “Tar Heel State”. North Carolina joined the Union on November 21, 1789 as the 12th state (Washington's First Annual Address to Congress).

The word Carolina is derived from the Latin form of Charles; it was Charles I of England who, in 1629, “erected into a province, all the land from Albemarle Sound on the north to the St. John's River on the south, should be called Carolina.” Originally one colony, the Carolinas were divided in 1710, with the older settlements being in the northern colony.

North Carolina Facts




North Carolina is in the South Atlantic Region and bounded by Virginia on the north, the Atlantic Ocean on the east, South Carolina on the south, Georgia to the southwest, and Tennessee on the west.

The capital Raleigh is named for Sir Walter Raleigh, who established the lost Roanoke Colony on Roanoke Island.

The “Tar Heels” nickname relates to the principal products of early North Carolina as being “tar, pitch and turpentine”, leading to references of holding one's ground in battle as in having tar stuck to one's heels; state legends suggests a Revolutionary War origin and a Civil War connection.

The Outer Banks, known as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” were also hiding places for pirates like Edward Teach, AKA “Blackbeard.”

Roanoke Island, which was the site of the English Roanoke Colony that disappeared c. 1587, and Kill Devil Hills near Kitty Hawk where the Wright Brothers were the first to fly a powered, heavier than air vehicle in 1903, are part of the Outer Banks.

Albemarle - Pamlico Sounds are part of a large, interconnected network of lagoon estuaries.

The pine is the most common of the trees found in North Carolina, as well as the most important one in the history the State. During the Colonial and early Statehood periods, the pine was a vital part of the economy of North Carolina. From it came many of the “naval stores” - resin, turpentine, and timber - needed by merchants and the navy for their ships. The pine has continued to supply North Carolina with many important wood products. The Dogwood blossoms, which appear in early spring and continue on into summer, are most often found in white, although shades of pink (red) are not uncommon. The dogwood can be found from the mountains to the coast. The General Assembly of 1941 designated the dogwood as the State Flower. (Public Laws, 1941, c. 289; G.S. 145-1).
