Bladenboro: Wrapped in History and Farming

Historically, the town of Bladenboro has been wrapped around farming. Known in its earliest days for its turpentine and lumber, the railroad was built in the 1800’s, and  brothers R.L. and H.C. Bridger came to Bladenboro to operate a turpentine business. A great location, as it is located just a short drive to the neighboring towns of Whiteville, Lumberton, and the county seat, Elizabethtown, NC. About an hours drive to the beaches, the town’s location yields small town flair with the convenience of more amenities not far away.
