Beaufort County was formed (renamed) in 1712 from Bath and Pamptecough counties. The county seat of Beaufort County is Washington. The correct spelling of course, is Beaufort, it is mis-spelled many ways including Beafort (sadly I had it misspelled as such here for a while.)

Washington, in Beaufort County was the first city to be named in honor of General George Washington. (1776) It had previously been known as “Forks of Tar River”. It’s located at the point where the Pamlico River narrows into the Tar River.

Points of interest include Historic Bath, NC’s first town (and hangout of BlackBeard the Pirate.) (Edward Teach). Also, the Belhaven Memorial Museum, NC Estruarium, Goose Creek State Park, Bennett Vineyards, Aurora Fossil Museum, and the Pentago Academy historical museum are all located in Beaufort County.

This area of North Carolina has started to be known as the “inner banks”.
