Bath: The Oldest Incorporated Town in North Carolina
Bath, NC, a small community of about 250 residents in 2011, is located in eastern NC. It was incorporated in 1705, which makes it North Carolina's oldest town. Bath was originally settled by colonists from Virginia in the 1690s. These settlers were likely drawn to the area due to its water-access via the Pamlico Sound and Pamlico River.
This prominent water route established the town as a major player in the Carolina colony and destined Bath to become a town of "firsts" in our state. As was many times the case, the Bath settlers battled disease, political unrest, conflict with native Americans and even a bout with pirates.
