The History of Wilson
Originally called Toisnot, it was formed around the local Baptist church built in the early 1800's. In 1849, the North Carolina Assembly chartered the town and renamed it "Wilson" after the late state senator Colonel Louis Wilson. It was also made the county seat of Wilson County.
Like many small towns at the time, the arrival of the railroad in the middle of the 19th century fueled the areas growth, and Wilson was no exception. While in its early days, "King Cotton" was the primary crop of the area, the first tobacco warehouse was built in 1890 and the railroad helped Wilmington become a major center of tobacco cultivation and distribution - earning the city the title "The World's Greatest Tobacco Market". Ending the 19th century, the city established both electric, gas, and water systems for its residents.
Today, the Wilson economy is quite diverse with home to banking giant Truist and a large manufacturing plant for Bridgestone tire (both companies the cities largest employers). Wilson is home to the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park, which is home to his many kinetic sculptures called "whirligigs" which he makes from salvaged metal. Vollis' whirligigs can be found in cities and museums around the U.S.
