Hamilton

St. Martin's Episcopal Church was established as a missionary station in 1868. The church was constructed in either 1879 or 1880. Materials were produced locally except for the ball and stained glass which were imported from England.
Located two miles below Hamilton, North Carolina and 60 miles upriver of the town of Plymouth. Sitting 70 feet above a bend in the Roanoke River, this Confederate earthen fort provided a safe and clear view of Union gunboats approaching from down river.
With a modest population of 465, the small town of Hamilton, North Carolina makes up for its size by being an undeniably historic community.
