About Newport

Christy Crumpler

Newport

NORTH CAROLINA

 

The Town With Old Fashioned Courtesy

Newport, NC

The Town of Newport was granted a charter from the State of North Carolina on January 30, 1866, but its history begins almost 150 years before that. The river, called Newport, which rises in the Lake Pocosin and empties into the Beaufort Inlet, was the Highway over which early settlers traveled to the "rich upland country". But the country was mainly pine forest. Not the cleared land where farmers grow brightleaf tobacco today.

Around a landing at the upper part of the river, the town of Newport sprang up. There, barges unloaded products landed at the port, Beaufort, and took on lumber and naval stores to be shipped from Beaufort to other colonial ports in the West Indies.

The area of “Newport” is actually much broader than just the town limits. Many other smaller towns & communities have their mailing address as Newport, including Ocean, Bogue, Broad Creek, Gales Creek—all running along the Hwy 24 corridor from Cape Carteret to Morehead City. The town limits of Newport run along the banks of the Newport River, and is adjacent to, and northwest of Morehead City, on US Hwy 70.
