Alan D. Watson
Created in 1729, Tyrrell County is one of North Carolinaís oldest counties; yet, geographically isolated and always sparsely populated, it never played a significant role in statewide affairs.
In this thorough and detailed history, Alan Watson chronicles
Tyrrell County over almost three centuries. The development of county government and courts from the proprietary period through
the end of the twentieth century is the authorís central theme.
The narrative expands to include discussion topics such as the
local economy, agriculture, internal improvements, and the lifestyles of the residents. More than sixty illustrations enhance the readerís experience.
