Craven County 300

Have you heard? Craven County is celebrating its 300th anniversary during 2012, and citizens will have a whole year to celebrate their communities, the county’s history and our vision for the future. In 1712, Craven Precinct was named, along with two others – Beaufort and Hyde. Most of North Carolina’s counties to the west and south can trace their lineage back to Craven Precinct. The remaining counties, with the exception of several northeastern counties, were carved from Beaufort and Hyde Precincts. Almost the entire State of North Carolina, therefore, has reason to celebrate with us in 2012!


The Craven County Commissioners and planning committee invite you to take an opportunity this year to learn about Craven County. Activities are being planned that will highlight all of its communities and allow participation by everyone, even in the planning.


There will be a County Commissioners meeting taking place in a neighborhood near you, as the evening meetings will be going on the road to all of the Commissioners’ districts. Starting the year off, the regular meeting on January 3, 2012 will be held at the Havelock Town Hall, followed in February at the River Bend Town Hall on the 6th.


Please visit the website often, as it unfolds, to check the online calendar and to keep updated on developing events.
