Welcome to Columbia and Tyrrell County, NC

We are nature’s buffer zone, sprawled between the urban mainland and the popular stretch of North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

Here is where the red wolf howls. Bald eagles and northern harriers soar across the sunset. American alligators live at their northern limits near ancient pocosin forests. Conservation gems like Palmetto-Peartree Preserve, Emily and Richardson Preyer Buckridge Coastal Preserve, Pocosin Lake National Wildlife Refuge and the bayside Eastern 4-H Environmental Education Conference Center help highlight Tyrrell County’s remarkable natural wealth.

There’s Much More!

And Tyrrell County has even more to offer — history, art, unique festivals, lodging, dining and shopping opportunities — all right here.
