Seagrove’s pottery tradition dates back to the 1700s before
the American Revolution. Many of the first area potters
were English and German immigrants who produced primarily
functional, glazed pottery. Due to the high quality of the
local clay, the Plank Road passing through the town, and the
railroad, Seagrove grew into a destination for pottery shoppers.

As a result of the Industrial Revolution and the advent of
modern food preparation, the popularity of Seagrove pottery
rapidly decreased during the mid 1800s. For a time, whiskey
jugs were a successful source of income, but the beverage was
outlawed and potteries continued their decline into the 1900s.
Handmade pottery tiles and mosaics; custom
installations
The potteries struggled until around 1920, when they became
popular with Northern tourists visiting nearby Pinehurst.
The new tourist industry marked a general change from
utilitarian pottery to the addition of more decorative ware.

A. R. Britt Pottery
After another decline from the 1950s through 1970s a
renewed interest in traditional pottery was beginning to
sweep the area. In 1982, local citizens, recognizing the
strength of preserving the history and heritage of their craft,
began to celebrate annually the weekend before Thanksgiving
by organizng the Seagrove Pottery Festival. The festival
weekend has now grown to include both the Seagrove
Pottery Festival and the Celebration of Seagrove Potters.
Today Seagrove is known as the self-proclaimed pottery
capital of the world where artisans create handcrafted
pottery made in the same tradition that began here more
than 200 years ago. With nearly 100 shops and galleries
scattered throughout the area, you’ll find everything from
traditional tableware to collectible art pieces.

he town of Seagrove was named for Edwin G.
Seagroves, a local official responsible for routing the
railroad through the area. According to local sources,
after a unanimous decision to name the railroad station after
Seagroves, the town name resulted from a sign painter
running out of space and simply dropping the “s” from the
end of the name. The railroad served Seagrove until December
31, 1951. The old train depot later became a pottery museum.
