Lenoir County, in seouth-central NC, is a memberof the Eastern Carolina Council of Governments. Lenoir County's County Seat, Kinston, was established in 1762 as "Kingston" and today is among the oldest cities in the state of North Carolina. The first court house in what is now Lenoir County was erected in 1779. It was a frame structure located at the corners of Queen and King Streets. This structure housed the courthouse, prison, and stocks. Today's courthouse is located at this same location.

Lenoir County's name honored a Speaker of the State Senate, General William Lenoir. General Lenoir, a hero of the Revolutionary war, was born in Brunswick County Virginia in 1751. At the age of eight the family moved outside of the city of Tarboro. In the years that followed General Lenoir was engaged in patriotic activities, which culminated in vigorous participation in the fight for America's independence.
