Founded in 1975, the Historic Albemarle Tour is one of the
oldest Heritage Trails in North Carolina. When you embark on the
Historic Albemarle Tour, you journey through 400 years of
American history, culture, and environment.
You can follow the self-guided Historic Albemarle Tour with one
of our brochures, which includes a map of the region featuring
our significant sites.
The Historic Albemarle Tour roads and trails are easily
identified by brown Historic Albemarle Tour highway signs (on
right), which are placed frequently along major and secondary
roads in northeastern North Carolina.
All Historic Albemarle Tour sites are identified by similar
directional signs placed near
the sites ->.
There's always something happening in the Historic Albemarle
Region. Check our our regional
