The Story of Goldsboro:

Brief History of Goldsboro: When Wayne County was formed in 1789, the town of Waynesborough developed along the banks of the Neuse River around the county courthouse that was built there. In the late 1830’s, the Wilmington and Raleigh (Weldon) Railroad line was built to the east of Waynesborough. At the intersection of the railroad and the New Bern Road, a hotel was built and a community began to establish itself. This community became known as Goldsborough’s Junction after Major Matthew T. Goldsborough, an Assistant Chief Engineer with the railroad line. The town of Goldsborough was incorporated in 1847, and the name officially changed to Goldsboro in 1869. The City of Goldsboro became the county seat for Wayne County in 1847 and has expanded to an area encompassing over twenty-five square miles. It is also a railroad & highway transportation center for the area’s agriculture, business, and industry, plus its major role in national defense.

Location: Located in the Coastal Plain region of eastern North Carolina, the City of Goldsboro is the county seat of Wayne County. Conveniently located on Interstate 795 and highways US 70, US 13 and US 117, Goldsboro is within minutes of the I-40 and I-95 corridors.
