Overview


Blessed with lush, rural landscapes and small-town charm, Pitt County possesses a history that typifies the traditional Southern experience. Once a major cotton producer, the area farmers transformed their cotton harvests in the late 1880s into tobacco, still a cash crop today in the community. Just as Pitt County is a center for both farming and education today, this volume, with over 125 images, focuses on the importance of flue-cured tobacco and learning institutions, such as the East Carolina Teachers Training School, a predecessor of East Carolina University.

Pitt County: Eastern Reflections is a visual tour into the county's past, primarily the early twentieth century, when horse and buggy shared road space with the early automobile, when students of all ages studied in one-room schoolhouses across the countryside, and when the main streets were flooded with wagons full of cotton and tobacco on market days. You will meet early Pitt County families, relax on front-porch rocking chairs, watch parades pass by along downtown streets, and view beautiful homes and farms in communities like Greenville, Farmville, and Bethel.
