Located off of Rhodes Haven Rd and Taylors Beach Rd this offering is very close to the coastal town of Columbia, NC and all the down home amenities it has to offer.

There is an old homestead on the property that would be a treasure to reclaim and re-purpose its well weathered timbers. The western side of the tract has a natural duck swamp amidst the trees, that is sure to hold a duck or two coming off of the open water. The views to the north are just spectacular, imagine building your next dream home with an unencumbered waterfront view of the Sound. The property consists of large areas of natural grassland, and native fauna, a tree lined drive leads back to the old homestead overlooking the sound. There are several ponds and plenty of shoreline to explore.

Located on the eastern shoreline of the Scuppernong River in northern Tyrrell County, Columbia was chartered in 1793 as Elizabethtown. The town became the Tyrrell County seat of government in 1799 and was renamed Columbia in 1801.
While settlers from Virginia streamed southward into the Albemarle region during the 18th century, development of Columbia and Tyrrell County proceeded slowly. Surrounding swamp forests, vast peat wetlands and pocosins restricted penetrations of the interior around the town. The area was one of the most isolated and sparsely settled parts of North Carolina well into the 20th century.

Primarily a fishing and trading center before the War Between the States, Columbia grew in the late 19th century as a result of the expanding lumber industry. Between 1880-90 the town grew from 166 to 382 residents. In 1908 the Norfolk and Southern Railway extended its track to Columbia, supplementing boat travel between the town and surrounding communities.

An annual festival known as “Columbia on the Scuppernong” provides small town fellowship, friendliness and fun to both residents and tourists. The second Saturday each October brings 8,000 to 10,000 to the downtown area for our annual Scuppernong River Festival. Local organizations, clubs, churches, businesses, and government agencies sponsor numerous activities throughout the year. The mild climate provides the perfect setting for enjoying the natural beauty along the pristine Scuppernong River. (
