After one year as a student at Trinity College, Naaman Hardison returned to Pamlico County and acquired a country store in the village of Arapahoe, gradually expanding into the sale of fertilizer and cotton ginning. Hardison also purchased land on the banks of the Neuse River, making improvements with the addition of several small buildings and christening the area Minnesott Beach. As seasonal and recreational traffic to Minnesott Beach increased, Hardison sought, and won, assistance from the State Conservation and Development Board in the form of beach reinforcing jetties that were placed at strategic points along the Neuse River, aimed at reducing erosion during hurricanes and intense storms.
