A LITTLE HISTORY
formed in 1872 from Craven and Beaufort
counties. It was named after Pamlico Sound,
which was named for an Indian tribe of the area.
Pamlico County lies in the eastern part of North
Carolina, bounded by Pamlico Sound, the Neuse
River and Beaufort and Craven counties. Court
was held at a store in Vandimere until 1876. In
1876 a legislative act authorized commissioners
to put to a vote of the people the possibility
of moving the county seat. Bayboro, incorporated
in 1881, was made the county seat.
