About Pikeville

Welcome to the Town of Pikeville, North Carolina, "The Gem of Wayne County."

We are defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. Pikeville is a small half-square mile community of approximately 700 residents surrounded by rich farmland on the north-central coastal plain of North Carolina.  We are located at the intersection of several major highways for north-south travelers (US 117 and I-795) and east-west travelers (NC 1002 and NC 1534).  The Town of Pikeville sits nestled off Interstate 795 just a stones throw away from Interstate 95 and a chip shot away from Interstate 40.  Raleigh/Durham area is less than an hour west.  More than 8,000 people travel through Pikeville daily on their way to and from everywhere, including the Carolina beaches and points west.

Pikeville is conveniently located on I-795 between Goldsboro/Seymour Johnson Air Force Base (9 miles to the south) and Wilson (19 miles north).  The Wayne County Jetport is located less than 4 miles outside of town, and in fact has a Pikeville address.

The town and surrounded areas are rich with cultural history and sites of historic interest.  Within a 10 mile radius, we have a wide variety of activity venues, including shopping, restaurants, specialty shops, and seasonal celebrations; in town, we also have quaint,quiet neighborhoods with affordable housing for growing families, empty nesters, and retirees.  As you travel this part of the country, we invite you to stop and spend some time discovering the peaceful charm of our small-town community.
