Havens Warf

411 West Main Street

Present-Day - Offices

Havens Warf was built around 1820 and is associated with one of Washington's most prominent mercantile families. Located directly on the Pamlico River, this was the busiest commercial shipping wharf in North Carolina. Ships from Europe, northern colonies, and the Caribbean used Havens Wharf to exchange their goods (sugar, cloth, spices, machinery, etc.) with goods brought downriver by barge (lumber, tar, pitch, turpentine, tobacco, cotton, etc.) This wharf is a scarce remnant of early 19th Century industrial-related structures. The iron hurricane doors and hurricane shutters were hand-forged, and most are original. Almost all of the original post-and-beam construction is intact.
