The present terminus of the Kinston & Carolina Railroad is at Turner Brothers store in this township, near the Duplin County line. This road was built by the Kinston Lumber Company as a logging road but the company is now making it a permanent road for passenger and freight traffic.

It is already doing a fine business of this class and the management will soon change the track from narrow to standard guage and put down heavy rails. When this is done the people of Pink Hill and other townships lying along the line and people further out in Duplin County, will have excellent rail connection with Kinston. At present the Kinston & Carolina Railroad provides a daily service between Kinston and Pink Hill.

From the Lenoir County, NC - Industrial Issue - 1906.
