Edgecombe is a rural County situated approximately one hour's drive east of Raleigh and two hour's drive inland from North Carolina's beaches.

With a population of approximately 56,000 persons, the County maintains a firm agricultural base while supporting the addition of environmentally friendly industries (Sara Lee, Keihin, QVC, and MBM). The County continues to maintain its famous charm and hospitality.

Tarboro, the County Seat, is particularly beautiful and offers brick paved sidewalks, a Downtown Historic District and the historic Town Common among other attractions.
