Welcome to historic Tarboro, North Carolina. Today’s interactive walking tour will give you an inside look into the town’s historic landmarks, buildings, and homes.

This app, called Echoes, will serve as an audio guide for your tour of historic Tarboro. Echoes uses smart location-aware technology that will allow you to explore the town of Tarboro at your own pace, taking breaks or dining at one of our delicious restaurants at your leisure. If you look at your screen, you will see a number of shapes scattered across the map. These are locations of interest. Walk freely and explore, and when you visit a historic spot marked on the map, the audio guide will sense that you have arrived and automatically begin explaining the site. The blue dot indicates your current location.

This tour includes the highlights of downtown Tarboro. Wherever you start, we welcome you to our beautiful town and encourage you to explore the map and visit as many locations as possible.

Ever since its founding, Tarboro has been at the heart of history in the South. The North Carolina State Legislature met here once in 1787 and again in 1987. At one time, our town was even under consideration to be the state capital of North Carolina. President George Washington slept in Tarboro during a visit on his 1791 Southern tour, and is noted to have said of our town that [quote] “it was the best salute you could have from a single cannon.”
