GOLDSBORO

The Gate City

OF

Eastern North Carolina

Goldsboro is the county seat of Wayne county, one of the leading manufacturing and agricultural counties of the state, being the home of forty-two well established manufacturing plants, their principal products being brick, veneer, lumber, building supplies, cotton yarns, hosiery, tobacco, locomotives, farm implements, furniture, mattresses, ladies and gents ready-to-wear, and several other commodities. Its agricultural resources are unlimited and Wayne county produces annually an average of thirty thousand bales of cotton, fifteen million pounds of tobacco, tons of grain, hay and other food crops to say nothing of live stock and poultry. Goldsboro is the center of the marketing of these commodities, which makes it a prosperous city and one well worth while locating in.

The population of Goldsboro in 1910 was 6,142. In 1920, according to government figures, this had been more than doubled and today Goldsboro claims a citizenship of fifteen thousand happy and prosperous people. The city is the shopping center of upward of 100,000 residing within a radius of twenty miles.

As a Commercial Center

Goldsboro, due to its surrounding territory and its geographical location and its unsurpassed facilties, is rapidly developing into a commercial center. Recently several large manufacturers have located distributing branches here. Thirty-two passenger trains run to and from the city daily which is quite advantageous to the commercial traveler doing business in Eastern North Carolina. Goldsboro is indeed and in fact The Gateway of Eastern North Carolina and as such has a mission to perform. A mission which concerns every man and a mission which means much to mankind, in general, because here in this favored spot is found health, happiness and well being.

A Bit Of History

Goldsboro dates back to the time of Sir Walter Raleigh, who, if he did nothing greater than exploit the section wherein is located the Gate City, is entitled, for this one act to a full meed of praise. In the many years that have elapsed since then, Goldsboro has pursued the even tenor of its ways and its

citizens have been content to enjoy and prosper under its advantages until it has secured a foundation on which to create and which will enable it to build like the wise man of old—upon a solid rock which will withstand the storms of panies, short crops and the greed of politicians. In the building of this city to date, ideal citizenship has been kept constantly in mind, and the greater duration of the visit of the “stranger within its gates” the more surely there comes the charm of intercourse with a hospitable, democratic class of citizens whose ideals are worth of character instead of a measure of the bank account.

Goldsboro's Climate

Here is the dividing line between the frigid climate of the north and the enervating climate of the tropics.

Here is found nine months of summer with only three of a not unpleasant autumn or winter temperature.

Here one is within a daylight journey of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Savannah, Atlanta and Jacksonville.

Here one is within a thirty hour ride of the cities of Boston, Quebec, Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnatti, Detroit, Chicago, St.

Louis, Louisville, Memphis, New Orleans, Mobile and Palm Beach and reaching the population of over seventy millions of people.

Here one is within a few hours’ ride of the finest surf bathing on the Atlantic coast on the beaches of Wrightsville, Morehead City and Beaufort; and here one can live in the warmth of a genial sun and yet be in touch with the life of the nation.

Why Come To Goldsboro?

Health conditions are ideal, the death rate averaging less than nine to a thousand. The city owns its splendid water system, furnishing at a minimum

cost the purest of soft, uncontaminated drinking water. Goldsboro has sixteen miles of hard surfaced streets, twenty-eight miles of paved sidewalks, five and one-half miles of electric car line, well equipped parks and playgrounds, permanent health and sanitary officers with efficient staffs, a permanent community center, a nationally known organization of Associated Charities, and one of the best and most active Chambers of Commerce in the south, a wideawake Merchants Association, an efficient Traffic Department, Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs and all of the permanently recognized Fraternal orders have local posts. Living conditions, from a health standpoint are beyond criticism and living conditions from a financial standpoint are within the means of all. Electric power, gas, telephone and water rates are below those of the average city. Being located in an agricultural district, country produce is plentiful and reasonable in price. All roads leading into Goldsboro are in good condition and within a few months most of them will be hard surfaced. Hotel facilities are ample. Board and room in private homes is available.

Products of the Soil

In addition to being the Gateway of Eastern North Carolina, Goldsboro is the county seat of Wayne county, which ranks first in agriculture. Here is grown hay, alfalfa, cowpeas, cabbage, beets, beans, peas, celery, truck garden products, strawberries, dewberries, huckleberries, melons, peaches, plums,

cherries, apples, pecans and numerous products of the soil. This is the land where can be grown three crops on the same soil during the year and a land which by reason of its freedom from rocks and stones is easily and economically tilled. Here can be produced from one acre of land 1,500 pounds of tobacco or 1,500 pounds of cotton.

Yesterday and Today

Thirty years ago Goldsboro was a village of very few inhabitants. The soil, always unusually fertile, had scarcely begun to yield the wealth that is now pouring out in such abundance. The production of tobacco, now a great industry, was then only being introduced in this section. The contrast between Goldsboro of that day and 1923 is amazing. Population has greatly increased. Manufacturing industries employing hundreds of people at a good scale of wages now occupy many acres that were then but the open field.

Today Goldsboro is an ideal location for factories. The great number of diversified industries now here are in a flourishing condition and developing to a marked degree each succeeding year; and the combination of climate, contiguity to the live sections of population, transportation, health, economic hospitality and other favorable conditions are

forces sure to produce a healthful, substantial and steady growth in population and wealth, and assures the investor as well as the homeseeker a certainty of acting wisely in locating in its midst.

Railroad Facilities

Goldsboro has three railroads—The Southern, Atlantic Coast Line and Norfolk Southern. These great systems are among the best in the United States and provide transportation facilities second to none. They lead to the seashore or to the North or South, to say nothing of the great Central West. The many agricultural products of Wayne county find an outlet through the county seat and the factories ship their products to every clime and every land.

Good Roads

Wayne county boasts of good roads which are of great importance to the farmer as well as the motorist and add pleasure to the existence of anyone who might be fortunate enough to be attracted to this section.

Schools and Churches

Goldsboro has one of the finest and best directed


[Illustration:

]






[Illustration:

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH
]

school systems of the State where a thorough and exacting course of instruction assures a splendid education and a good college preparation. Nine school buildings supply the demand and they are constructed on the latest approved plan for educational institutions.

Goldsboro has a high moral and religious tone. There are sixteen churches of various denominations

ST. MARY'S CATHOLIC CHURCH
]

whose congregations work in close harmony towards the advancement of the common weal and who gladly welcome all new comers. Anyone is welcome here, however, regardless of their religious belief and is free to act in accordance with their convictions.

Goldsboro has a generous and well constructed water and sewerage system. It was built with consideration of the future and is ample for the supply and sanitation of a city of many thousands of inhabitants.

With an abundance of water Goldsboro has a guarantee which attracts factories as well as individuals. The fire fighting force, backed by modern appliances is efficient and watchful.

Eastern North Carolina

It is recognized today that the great South, with her amazing number of unexploited resources and possibilities of development, her superior conditions for agricultural production, and her healthful and charming climate affords at the present the best field of opportunity. The only debatable question is, which southern state and what location in that state, offers the best combination of the particular conditions you desire.

Wonderful is the South, and great beyond our dreams will be her future, but in all these Southern States there will be none to compare in the magnitude of its growth with the pre-eminently wellfavored state of North Carolina. This great state with her magnificent mountains; rolling fields, extensive sea coast and salubrious climate has a greater

number of valuable resources and a larger assortment of productive soils than any other state.

North Carolina has a commercial and geographical location second to none, transportation facilities that are excellent; a vast horde of minerals that exist in greater variety than in any other portion of the world of equal extent; swift rivers that furnish unlimited amount of the power for the operation of millions of machines, and productive lands, which, aided

by a long growing season and ample rainfall, always yield a valuable and abundant harvest.

Drop a line due South from New York City and you will hit the extreme eastern part of North Carolina, but to touch the western limit you will have to go as far in that direction as Toledo, Ohio. In these extensive confines practically any set of conditions can be found, but the eastern portion, of which Goldsboro is the Gateway, possesses the greatest diversity of resources, whether considered agriculturally, industrially or commercially.

An Invitation is Extended

For years after its foundation, Goldsboro may be said to have slumbered along content with its gradual growth, beauty and climate, but when the cities of North Carolina began to develop in such rapid and magnificent manner, Goldsboro became imbued with a spirit of progress which has been such a dynamitic factor in the South's upbuilding, discovered that in the wealth of resources her territory afforded, in the great farming possibilities of the surrounding country and in her natural advantages and favorable situation there exists all of the elements needed for the making of a city of wealth, beauty and opportunity.

A Firm Foundation

The foundation has now been laid upon which it is easy to build. All modern improvements and conveniences have been installed; the rich agricultural districts which have been opened by a network of good roads are fast becoming settled by the best class of progressive farmers from the South and the North and the West. The railroad facilities have been improved; fine residences, banks, stores and new schools and churches have taken the place of older structures; industries have enlarged their plants and increased in number and new enterprises are locating in this favored spot.

The Right Hand of Fellowship

The Goldsboro and Wayne county territory is an unlocked storehouse of wealth. There is a gold mine on every farm and posibilities in any line of honest endeavor. While many sections of the country are suffering from reaction following the world war, this city and county have not taken a step backwards, its people have moved onward and upward with an eye to the future, ever confident that they reside in a great state, knowing full well that a people who do not depend upon sect or creed for their prosperity will predominate and must prevail. The right hand of fellowship is extended. Will you grasp it and cast your future with Goldsboro and Wayne county in North Carolina?

EDGERTON'S MEDICATED SALT BRICK

Manufactured by Spence Bros., of Goldsboro, is sold all over the United States and is recognized as a leading stock remedy. These bricks are subject to heavy pressure, then air dried, thus protecting the medical qualities. This stock remedy was invented by Mr. G. L. Edgerton, patented and placed on the market.
