Abstract:
The Roanoke River has influenced the Williamston area since the English explored it in 1584. Commercial goods, including logs, fishing products, and naval stores, were shipped on the river until the Civil War. After the war railroads replaced river shipping. Logging and fishing dwindled. Today tobacco and shopping centers boost Williamston's economy. However, the river is making a comeback thanks to ecotourism. People want to experience the natural environment. A canoe/camping trail has been built, and other projects are planned.

Abstract:
Progress for its county and seat could be perceived as inevitable. The county named for the last Royal Governor considerably contributed to Revolutionary and Confederate War efforts. Its development was continually impacted by the Roanoke River, which spurred the establishment of a Weyerhaeuser company plant. As for recent progress, education’s advancement beyond the public education level was assured in a community college opening in the early 1970s.

Abstract:
The public education experience for many in decades past was spent in one room schoolhouses. The people of Williamston were reminded of that experience. It came with the arrival of the Poplar Point School, constructed circa Civil War and lately restored to its original condition. With its migration from this small town came reminders of that way of life for students. It was one different in many ways and better in some ways, to the author’s estimation.
