North Carolina in the 1800s

North Carolina State House of Representatives

1876-1877

This General Assembly met from November 20, 1876 to March 12, 1877.

Pender County was established in 1875, and it sent their first delegates to the 1876 NC General Assembly. As a result, New Hanover County had to give up one member in the House of Representatives.
