The Tar Heel State encompasses 34.4 million acres, just over 53,819 square miles. Located in the southeastern region of the United States, its eastern border is formed by the Atlantic Ocean. Neighboring states include Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina.

North Carolina’s name derives from the Latin word, Carolus, in honor of King Charles I of England who formed the colony in 1729. North Carolina became the 12th state of the Union in 1789.

Nicknamed the “Tar Heel” State, North Carolina was a leading producer of tar, pitch, and other materials made from the abundant pine trees. Originally a derogatory term for the poor laborers, it was turned into a statement of pride when Civil War Confederate soldiers stood their ground “as if they had tar on their heels” against Union advancement. The state flower is the Flowering Dogwood, and the state bird is the Cardinal.

The state is made up of 100 counties. Raleigh is the capital and the second largest city. Charlotte is the largest city.

Regions

North Carolina’s four land regions are the Blue Ridge Mountains, Piedmont, Sandhills, and Coastal Plains.

Agriculture

Agriculture continues to be an important industry in North Carolina, generating $10.1 billion in revenues for the Tar Heel State. There are approximately 52,000 farms in the state, covering 8.5 million acres. The average size farm comprises 168 acres. Agriculture makes a significant contribution to all 100 counties.

North Carolina’s most valuable crops are sweet potatoes, corn, and peanuts. The state also grows substantial quantities of tobacco, soybeans, and cotton. Most of the cropland is found in the southeastern (Coastal Plains) region of the state.

Wildlife

North Carolina wildlife is abundant within the state on both land and water. The dense vegetation, ample rainfall, and forage make it a wildlife mecca for land animals and fisheries alike. Its primary wildlife includes black bears, wild turkey, and white-tailed deer.

The combination of both freshwater and saltwater creates a diverse ecosystem for many fish species, including black bass, crappie, catfish, blue gill, and perch. The primary saltwater species include spotted seatrout, blue fish, king mackerel, flounder, red drum, and dolphin (mahi).

Major Rivers and Lakes

North Carolina’s four longest rivers are the Roanoke River, New River, Neuse River, and Pee-Dee River. Their main tributaries include the Big Otter River, Falling River, and Dan River.

The surface area of this lake is approximately 30,000 acres (46.8 square miles).
