Norlina, North Carolina


Welcome to the Town of Norlina

This is the official government website for The Town of Norlina in Warren County, NC.

Norlina was first called the “Ridgeway Junction” in 1837.  As a railroad ran right through this area, many citizens started to sell wood and water to the railroad.  Eventually this began to expand and in the 1860’s the name changed to the “Woodyard”.

By the 1870’s the area had grown in business, and was referred to as the “Junction”.  The Seaboard and Raleigh Railroad had just been formed and the “Junction” was now thriving with its business.  A small community was formed, including two hardware stores, a horse drawn taxi service, and smithing shops.

By 1900, John Williams established the Seaboard Air Line Railway and it grew to over 4,680 miles!  This small group of people had turned the railway stop into a real town.  In 1913 the name Norlina was coined, coming from the beginning part of “North” and the ending part of “Carolina”.

“This institution is an equal opportunity provider.”
