Hi Silena,

Thanks for visiting NCpedia.

What type of information are you looking for?  If you have specific topics that will help me point you to resources.  NCpedia has 6,900 articles on North Carolina biography, history and culture so we can hopefully help.

Please feel free to post back here with more specifics and we'll try to help.

I have lived in NC since 1991, and have been curious the entire time about the notch in the NC to SC line, just southwest of Charlotte. This area includes Steele Creek. Way back when the line was drawn, why did it not simply continue northwesterly until it intersected the latitude of the line headed due west until it again turned southwest to find Ellicott's Rock (where NC, SC, & GA meet)? Many thanks!

Hi Tony,

Thanks for visiting NCpedia. That's a really great question!

Here is a link to the NCpedia entry on the history of the boundaries -- http://ncpedia.org/boundaries-state.  It is a fairly complex story dating from the colonial era to the present day and involving a number of historical surveys.  In fact, in 2011 North Carolina and South Carolina joined forces to revisit the old surveys and resurvey the joint line.  In the NCpedia entry for the above link, you'll also find references and additional resources (scroll down to the bottom of the entry) that provide additional details.

I hope this helps!
