Governor Charles B. Aycock Birthplace

Visit Governor Charles B. Aycock Birthplace

Charles B. Aycock was born into a rural home here in Wayne County in 1859. Interested in politics from his youth, Aycock began to practice law and move up in the Democratic Party after graduating from the University of North Carolina. In 1900 he was elected governor and dedicated himself to improving public education in North Carolina. By the time he left office four years later, one school had been built for each day the governor was in office. Today a typical schoolhouse of the period stands on the site.
