Abstract:
Willamsboro, located in Granville County and planned by Judge John Williams, almost became the capitol of North Carolina, almost became the site for the University of North Carolina, and almost became a big city with prominent churches, educational academies, and businesses, but when the railroad bypassed Williamsboro several miles away, it became its downward trend.
