North Carolina in the 1900s

North Carolina State House of Representatives

1913

This General Assembly met from January 8th to March 12th in 1913. An Extra Session was convened from September 24th to October 13th in 1913.

The House of Representatives was reapportioned due to the results of the 1910 U.S. Census. The number of Representatives remained at one hundred-twenty (120).

Although Lee County was established in 1907, and Avery County and Hoke County were established in 1911, all three began sending their first delegates to this General Assembly.
