Atlantic & North Carolina

The road was chartered in 1854, and construction was completed in 1858. The road ran from Goldsboro, through New Bern to Beaufort. Since it ended across the sound from Beaufort, the new town of Morehead City was created where the tracks ended.

The road was built in an attempt to get North Carolina goods shipped through the small, ailing North Carolina ports, rather than through Norfolk, Virginia. It was of little value, before or during the war.
