North Carolina in the 1800s

North Carolina State House of Representatives

1883

This General Assembly met from January 3rd to March 12th in 1883.

The number of delegates per county were reapportioned due to the results of the 1880 U.S. Census.

Although Graham County and Pamlico County were established in 1872, and Vance County was established in 1881, all three sent their first delegates to the 1883 NC General Assembly.
