Plymouth is a nice, small, historic town on the Roanoke River. Plymouth was founded in 1787 and has grown very slowly to a current population of 3,749. Over the last two hundred years Plymouth has had several periods of growth and contraction and has recently been slowly losing residents. One of the main sources of employment in Plymouth for many decades has been a paper plant on the West side of town. That plant has recently been reducing production and staffing levels. As a result Plymouth has been trying to reorient it's economy towards services and is making an effort to capture some of the large amount of tourist traffic heading to and from the coast on highway 64. Plymouth has built a very nice river walk with a path that extends in either direction from downtown along the Roanoke river. Heading East away from downtown- the path travels through some lovely river bank cypress forest. Plymouth also has a nicely restored lighthouse, a small museum and a large number of interesting, well maintained 19th century homes, churches and commercial buildings. If you're heading to Naggs Head on 64, Plymouth is well worth stopping in for a walk around the central business district and along the river. It's about two miles North of 64.
