Dover Fort Barnwell Tract In Eastern North Carolina


Are you looking for a great investment in farmland in Craven County, well look no further!! This nice mini farm has over 25+/- acres of tillable farmland renting for $80.00 per acre/per year, and the remaining land is mixed timber and planted rows of timber that are enrolled in the NCCREP program. This edging and planting design provides great privacy from the road and bedding cover for all the native wildlife in the area. There are ditches already in place in the fields providing great drainage throughout. There is also an old homesite with a power pole, barn and shed in place. Although these structures are not ready to use, they could possibly be salvaged or saved. There is even a concrete slab in place under the lean-to shed that would provide a great foundation and start to keep that shed in place. There is great road frontage with over 1,400 feet and a driveway in place to start a new home site or mini-farm. Included in this sale is a 7-acre parcel that is all timber and located just up the road from the large parcel.  This could serve as a campsite or place to store a camper, just down the street from the larger parcel.

Fort Barnwell is an unincorporated community in Craven County, North Carolina, United States. The fort was founded by Colonel John Barnwell of the South Carolina militia in 1712 and was abandoned in 1715. The fort, used in the Tuscarora War is now an archeological site and a National Historic Landmark. The present-day town of Fort Barnwell is located 18 miles east of Kinston and 2 miles west of New Bern near the Neuse River. Highway 55 runs through the town. It receives mail through the Dover Post Office and is served by the Fort Barnwell Volunteer Fire Department. The community, much like other small towns in the area, continues to grow in size as a satellite city to New Bern.
