Historic Bath State Historic Site is one of the places within the Department of Cultural Resources' Division of State Historic Sites & Properties that people can visit to learn of our state's interesting and varied history. Historic Bath is also a member of the Historic Albemarle Tour.
Bath is a town of firsts! The town became North Carolina's first town; it was incorporated in 1705. Christopher Gale, the first chief justice of the colony, resided here. A collection of books and pamphlets sent to St. Thomas Parish in 1701 became the first public library in the colony. The colony's first shipyard was established here. Bath became the first official port of entry for the colony, as well.
Visiting Bath today, it is easy to see how this protected little harbor appealed to early settlers. The water still holds a fascination for us today, although rather than being a bustling Colonial port, we find ourselves spellbound with thoughts of Blackbeard and the way things might have been years ago.
