Hamilton, incorporated in 1804 and located on the Roanoke River, long prospered as a bustling commercial port. Shallow-draft steamboats, the cotton gin and a burgeoning textile trade here and abroad, brought river traffic to its peak during the years preceding the Civil War. Many of Hamilton’s fine old homes were built during this period (1830-1850) and are found in the National Register Historic District and included in a walking tour. It is believed, that many antebellum buildings were burned during a Union occupation of the town. See wonderfully restored homes, from Queen Anne-style to modest bungalows.
