Once heralded as The Worlds Greatest Tobacco Market, Wilson, NC is now a thriving city of almost 50,000 people that has successfully recruited new business including pharmaceuticals, banking, and medical to replace the lost tobacco market revenue. During the heyday of the tobacco market in the late 1800s and early 1900s, its success drew prosperous farmers and businessmen to establish majestic homes downtown along West Nash Street, widely known as one of the most beautiful residential areas in North Carolina.

Now lining the avenues of the downtown business district, historically preserved architecture with high-speed fiber optic internet blends the visions of yesteryear with the inspiration of tomorrow. Weathered brick tobacco warehouses and a Classical Revival courthouse share street space with todays boutique shops, a regional business incubator and burgeoning arts community. (
