1. Camden County Courthouse Marker
Inscription. Built in 1847, the historic Camden County Courthouse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. "A jewel among the state's Greek Revival buildings," the two-story building with hip roof and five-bay main facade replaced a courthouse constructed in 1782 which burned in 1845. Camden County was formed in 1777 from Pasquotank County and was named for Sir Charles Pratt, the Earl of Camden (1716-1794). A major courthouse addition was completed in 1997 and the full building was renovated in 2006.
