History

Before being formed as a county, the region had at least one known small Native American Tribe in the 1700's - the Sissipahaw who lived in the area bound by modern Saxapahaw, Hawfields and Haw River locations in the county [1][2]. European Americans entered the region largely following Native American trading paths that became the basis of the railroad and interstate highway routes[3]. The county was formed January 29, 1849 [4] from Orange County. It was named after Great Alamance Creek, site of the Battle of Alamance (May 16, 1771), in which militia under the command of Governor William Tryon crushed the Regulator movement. The Great Alamance Creek, and in turn the Little Alamance Creek, according to legend, were named after a local Native American word to describe the blue mud that was found at the bottom of the creeks.
