Goldsboro rests in the middle of Eastern North Carolina. It is well known as the home of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. Goldsboro was once known as Waynesborough. When Wayne County was formed in 1789, the town of Waynesborough developed along the banks of the Neuse River, around the county courthouse built there. In the late 1830's, the Wilmington and Raleigh (Weldon) Railroad line was built to the east of Waynesborough. At the intersection of the railroad and the New Bern Road, a hotel was built and a community began to establish itself. This community became known as Goldsborough's Junction after Major Matthew T. Goldsborough, an Assistant Chief Engineer with the railroad line. The town of Goldsborough was incorporated in 1847, and the name officially changed to Goldsboro in 1869. The City of Goldsboro became the county seat for Wayne County in 1847 and has expanded to an area encompassing over twenty-five square miles. With a population exceeding 39,634, Goldsboro has developed largely as the transportation center for the area's agriculture industry.
