Mountains Economy In the past, settlers sold cattle and other livestock that they let graze on the mountain grass. Other families sold plants with medical properties. In recent times: Tourism is the largest part of the economy. The Cherokee Reservation boasts of running camp sites, casinos, and other activities. Large amount of retirement and vacation homes are in this area. Golf common retiree sport. There is also a very large Christmas tree industry. Many places will let you pick and cut your own tree.

The Piedmont Region: Our Home :D Characteristics Red clay: hidden by a thin layer of black soil. Rich in iron. The Fall Line: extends from around the Roanoke Rapids past Raleigh and Fayetteville. An invisible line that divides the Piedmont from the Coastal Plain. Two Main Rivers: Yadkin-Pee Dee and Catawba (these rivers do not cross the fall line. Most of the piedmont is covered by forestsprimarily with pine, oak, and hickory tree

High Point, Lenoir, and Hickoryhome to furniture factories. Banking NASCAR- Charlotte Research Triangle Park= home to technology industries Home of Colleges and Universities UNC- Charlotte, Greensboro, and Chapel-hill Shaw College Duke

Wake Forest NC State University And more The Coastal Plains Characteristics Flat lands Soil rich for farming Carolina Bays Sandhills Two Types of Communities Crossroad Hamlets: These community

centers are often named for local residents They often contain a store or two, a school ,or church. Examples: Ballards Crossroads and Hills Crossroads Tobacco Towns: Been here since the colonial days People in these towns focused their activities

around the raising of tobacco. These towns had/have more than half a dozen tobacco warehouses Everyone from bankers to farm equipment dealers scheduled their businesses around the tobacco harvest Examples: Rocky Mount, and Greenville Carolina Bays Definition: Hundreds of elongated depressions

in the ground. Some are filled with water like White Lake. Others are mucky and muddy half the yr, but dry the other half. More have been drained and plowed for farm land. The Sandhills Located northwest of the Carolina bays. Large

concentrations of rolling sand dunes leftover by the ancient change of the Atlantic coastline. Today this area is used for Fort Bragg and golf courses. Tidewater Region Characteristics Water, Water, Everywhere!!!

Spans from 30-50 miles in width along NC coast Land is influenced by the oceans tides Sounds: inland bodies of mixed water (mix of fresh and salt water). Barrier islands- Graveyard of the Atlantic Swamps, Lakes, Estuaries, Rivers, and Wetlands Barrier Islands Definition: a very long

ridge of sand which spread along the ocean floor, forever shifting with the tides and storms that happen along the coast. Where sand has low places in between the islands, form inlets which allow for the tides to flow in and out. Lighthouses were placed on these islands to warn ships of the dangers ahead. The biggest danger is

Cape Hatteras which has been known for centuries as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Sounds Sounds are connected to wetlands and estuaries which support an abundance of life. Including fish, shrimp, and shellfish , which serve as a vital source of

income for the families in those areas. NC has 5 major sounds: Currituck, Albemarle, Pamlico, Core, and Bogue. Pamlico is the largest and deepest sound (20ft) near Washington, NC. Sedimentation has prevented small river towns like Washington, or Edenton to become large
