Location, Space, and Labor

Person County is served by five primary highways, a freight rail service, and a state-of-the-art municipal airport with a 6,000-foot lighted runway. RDU international airport is located 45-minutes from Person County, and the deep-water ports of Morehead City and Wilmington are within four-hour drives.
