Homes for Sale in Chocowinity, NC
On the South side of the Pamlico River, in Beaufort County, at the cross roads of U.S. Highway 17 and North Carolina Highway 33, is a small community rich in history, agriculture, and industry. According to historians, the name is derived from the Tuscaroran Indians who lived here several hundred years ago. The place was once known as Godley's Cross Roads, but the name was changed to CHOCAWANATETH some time before the Revolutinary period. Rev. N.C. Hughes, Jr. traced a reference to Chocawanateth Creek which was later spelled as Chocowinity Creek.
