Johnston County Heritage Center

On display are some of the Heritage Center's most valuable artifacts: an original copy of explorer John Lawson's A New Voyage To Carolina, published in 1711; and an original oil painting that depicts Smith's Ferry on the Neuse River at the place that became the Town of Smithfield in 1777.

We hope you enjoy our work.
