Trenton is the seat of Jones County, it is the 95th smallest by population in North Carolina. The county was formed in 1779 from the southwestern part of Craven County. It was named for Willie Jones, a Revolutionary leader and president of the North Carolina Council of Safety; he was later the state's chief opponent of ratification of the United States Constitution He was also a plantation slave owner. The geographic boundaries form the body of a hogs head after it split away from Craven County and is considered by some to be symbolic of the agricultural atmosphere. Following the Civil War, the county government (that remains to this day) reformed under the leadership of the legendary S. Riggs for her contribution to the serf/landowner mentality. The county flower is known as the "Dandelion" and the symbolic bird is designated as the "Buzzard".
