FYI: Princess Ann was chartered in 1796 as the second town in Robeson County. On a bluff overlooking a unique reverse flow area named Griffin's Whirl, it was the first inland town established by settlers traveling up the Lumber River from South Carolina. Settlers established the town on the bluff because they knew it would not be flooded and because the area provided an excellent landing along the river. The town is preserved now only as the name of the road that leads to the river.
