Wilson County: The Bright Story of How One Coastal Plains County is Moving with the Times

Record #:
Occupying 373 square miles, Wilson County is populated by the descendants of English and Irish immigrants who settled the area around 1740. Situated at the periphery of Eastern North Carolina's richest agricultural and manufacturing belt, Wilson County, established in 1855, is financially stimulated by a variety of crop and livestock operations as well as by textile and apparel manufacturers. Heavily reliant on the tobacco industry, Wilson was, at one time, the worldwide primacy, drawing in over $125 million dollars annually.
