Historic Tarboro NC

 

Historic Albemarle TourIncorporated in 1760, and said to be one of the state’s most beautiful towns, Tarboro in the 18th and 19th centuries was a thriving port on the Tar River, and was once a candidate to become North Carolina’s capital city.

Now it is the home of Edgecombe Community College, a QVC distribution center, and many other thriving businesses and corporations. It boasts a 45-block Historic District, a lovely Town Common, the Hobson Pittman Memorial Gallery in the c. 1808 Blount-Bridgers House, and a downtown with unique shops, restaurants, and early 20th century renovated commercial properties.

Within walking distance of the Town Common, the Tour included six privately restored homes (one a B&B with wine bar), two historic churches, and the Bridgers Building on Main Street as a work-in-progress. On the outskirts of town, two c. 1709 historic residences on an estate with a pond, livestock and a horse barn were also shown.

The Blount-Bridgers House, a c.1808 historic house museum and art gallery operated by the Edgecombe County Cultural Arts Council (Edgecombe ARTS) served as Tour headquarters.
