Tips for searching the North Carolina Gazetteer

Return to The North Carolina Gazetteer main page.

If you search for a term with an apostrophe or hyphen and get no results, try your search without those punctuation marks.

Example: search for Toms Creek instead of Tom’s Creek


Many towns, geographic features, and other places in North Carolina have the same name. The Gazetteer lists them in alphabetical order by county.


This will only search place names. Extra words that may be included in the description will not help you find the correct entry.
