Der North Carolina Land Und Colonie Etablissement

Record #:
In 1753, the Moravian Brethren purchased 100,000 acres of land in North Carolina for Church settlement. Members could buy a 2,000 acre lot in one of the land tracts and settle the area; the entire community became known as Wachovia. The contracts for each lot are preserved in German archives. A map of the tracts is included in the article with additional information on the owners through 1767.
