Abstract:
The first land grants for the region currently known as Lenoir County date as far back as 1716. Once inhabited by the Neusick Native Americans, Lenoir is in general, a flat region encompassing 390 square miles. Established in 1791 out of tumult stemming over the American Revolution, Lenoir was resuscitated by the internal improvements of 1815, the arrival of the railroad in 1858, as well as the roads program of 1919. Sustained via tobacco and commercial operations, population and prosperity levels have continued to increase through the centuries.
