The history of Tarboro

Created in 1760, Tarboro is the ninth-oldest incorporated town in North Carolina. Situated on the Tar River at the fall line in the Piedmont, the town served the area as an important colonial river port. It was a thriving trade center until the Civil War. Recognized by the National Park Service in 1977, the 45-block Tarboro Historic District boasts over 300 structures from the residential dwellings to historic churches to original 19th-century storefronts along Tarboro’s Main Street. The gateway to the Tarboro Historic District is the Tarboro Town Common, a 15-acre park canopied by tall oaks and including war memorials. The Town Common originally surrounded the town and is the second-oldest legislated town common in the country.[citation needed] Initially the location for common grazing of livestock, community gatherings and military drills, the Town Common is the only remaining original common on the east coast outside of Boston.
