All General Assemblies Identified with Year(s)

The North Carolina General Assembly was established by the first NC Constitution in December of 1776 as the Legislative Branch of the State government. This bicameral assembly was originally created with two chambers - the Senate and the House of Commons and it first convened in April of 1777. The significantly revised NC Constitution of 1868 defined the two chambers as the Senate and the House of Representatives.
