Local Information

Welcome To Sampson County!

Welcome to Sampson County, the largest county in North Carolina! We are pleased that you are considering our industrious, friendly community and hope that Southern Heritage Realty can be of help as you work toward a move to the Clinton-Sampson County area.

The County has two public school systems, one private school, one alternative resource school, and Sampson Community College which offers a variety of professional, vocational, and technical programs. The North Carolina Justice Academy, located in Salemburg, provides criminal justice training for many state and local agencies. Sampson Regional Medical Center, located in Clinton, is a progressive hospital with comprehensive health care facilities. Clinton is the county seat offering a full range of government services and facilities.

Sampson County enjoys a seasonal climate, rich soil and an abundance of water, which served as the natural ingredients for Sampson County to develop as an agricultural leader in the nation. Tobacco, cotton, and vegetables led the way in the early days. More recently, the mass production of poultry and pork made Sampson the largest producer of hogs in the United States. Agriculture continues to be the basis for Sampson County’s economy as we lead the state in gross farm income. We continue as the state’s largest producer of vegetables and swine, are second in turkeys, cotton, and sweet potatoes and are eighth in tobacco. Industries, which are also attracted to the seasonal climate as well as the progressive business climate of the area, have recently located throughout the county in a variety of suitable industrial locations including a 372-acre Sampson Southeastern Business Complex located in Clinton.

Sampson County is served by an ideal transportation network. The close proximity of Interstate 40 provides easy access to 300 miles of sandy beaches, islands and inlets of the North Carolina coast renowned for its fishing, boating and other recreational opportunities. Also within easy reach is western North Carolina, bounded by two ranges of the Southern Appalachians, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smokey Mountains. Conveniently located only and hour’s drive from the state capital and Research Triangle Park, residents participate in a broad range of cultural and recreational activities.

Clinton and Sampson County combine an ideal business environment with a relaxed lifestyle. Hospitality is our way of life in this small community where residents know and care for their neighbors. No matter the length and/or reason for your stay, you will find adequate accommodations and plenty of accommodating people.

We are glad you are considering making Sampson County your home and look forward to assisting in your transition.
