Interesting Facts: The county is named for General Landon Carter, the son of John Carter of Virginia, who was “chairman of the court” of the first majority-rule system of American democracy, known as the Watauga Association of 1772. The association was the first permanent settlement established outside the original thirteen American colonies and included the area that is today’s Carter County. In 1775, the Association was absorbed into North Carolina by petition, becoming known thereafter as the Washington District.
