About Warren County, N.C.

Warren County, North Carolina consists of 443 square miles of natural beauty nestled in the northeastern section of the Piedmont region. The county is an hour north of Raleigh, with the northern boundary located along the Virginia state line.

Established during the height of the American Revolution, Warren County reflects its early beginnings. Over fifty Warren County properties rate a listing in the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, Warren County contributed six attorney generals, five magnates of the tobacco industry, four governors, and three Supreme Court judges to the state of North Carolina. The county name honors Joseph Warren of Massachusetts. Mr. Warren was a physician and general in the American Revolutionary War, who died in the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Initially, Warren County's economy relied heavily on its tobacco crops. Other export products included beef, flax, hemp, pork, tar and turpentine. Manufacturing, retail trade and educational, health and social services support the local market today. Local businesses, such as Cochrane Furniture and Glen Raven Mills, benefit greatly from the partnership of Warren County Economic Development Commission and the Research Triangle Park. Together these organizations provide a wide variety of training, incentives and support to the business community.

Warren County reported nearly 20,000 residents (census 2003) spread through its twelve townships. These include Fishing Creek, Fork, Hawtree, Judkins, Nutbush, River, Roanoke, Sandy Creek, Shocco, Sixpound, Smith Creek, and Warrenton. Warrenton, the county seat, reported a population of 811 in the 2000 Census. A stately old courthouse, antebellum mansions and charming cottages reflect the history preserved in this renaissance town.

The majority of Warrenton's businesses reside in a historic district listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Recently, Warrenton updated its Main Street with several new restaurants, antique shops, and specialty stores. Warrenton offers quality public schools and is home to a Vance-Granville Community College campus. Other opportunities for higher learning exist in nearby cities. North Carolina State University, Meredith College and Shaw University are located in Raleigh, with Duke University and North Carolina Central University in nearby Durham.
