European settlement near the Pamlico River in the 1690s led to the founding of Bath, North Carolina's first town, in 1705. It soon became the state's first port. Bath was later the haunt of Edward Teach, better known as the pirate "Blackbeard."
Early facilities included a gristmill, the colony's first shipyard and public library, a free school for all races, and a church that is now the state's oldest existing church. The original town limits, laid out by explorer John Lawson, are the boundaries for a National Register historic district. The Palmer-Marsh House is a National Historic Landmark.
The N.C. General Assembly met in Bath in 1743, 1744 and 1752.
The state historic site is part of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources (www.ncdcr.gov). Events at Historic Bath and other state historic sites are listed at www.ncculture.com.
