"The Avery Family of North Carolina"
An Exhibit of Manuscript Materials from the Avery Family Papers (#33)
Curated by Laura Knodel, Research Assistant
Prepared by Laura Knodel and John E. White
4th Floor, Wilson Library
The Avery family was prominent in western North Carolina, particularly
Burke County, from the late 1700s through the 1900s. Members of the
Avery family were active in politics at both the state and local
level. They operated plantations, including Swan Ponds, and acquired
vast amounts of land in Burke County and other Western North Carolina
counties. They participated in various business ventures ranging from
gold mining to railroad construction, and they also practiced law.
Members of the Avery family fought in both the American Revolution and
the Civil War.
