Historic Albemarle Tour
A NORTH CAROLINA HERITAGE TRAIL SINCE 1975
We Bring 400 Years of Northeast North Carolina History to Life
When you embark on the Historic Albemarle Tour, which winds through 27 sites and 17 Northeast North Carolina counties, you encounter chapters from a history book that teach volumes about the present. And the tale of this ancient region is the story of America. It’s a story of growth and change . . . of wilderness walks and uncharted horizons . . . a multi-dimensional microcosm of the American experience that enhances a sense of place. It illuminates who we are, where we came from and where we’re going.
