Graham is the only county in North Carolina without a single Negro citizen, and has only ever cited the existence of one Negro family who left the county in 1902. Court records indicate the presence of Negroes working in Graham, with only two court cases involving civil action. Aside from a lack of Negro residents, Graham County is known for the highest dam in the east, the Fontana Dam, at 480 feet in height.
