The Tarboro Development Corporation welcomes you to Downtown Tarboro to explore opportunities for investment during our Showcase Event. The mission of the Tarboro Development Corporation is to encourage collaboration and vision throughout the community for the purpose of developing strategies to preserve the historic appeal, improve the economic vitality, and promote a diverse and vibrant Downtown Tarboro.
Nestled between the Historic District, an alluring 15-acre Town Common, and the banks of the Tar River, Downtown Tarboro serves as the front porch to businesses and residents. The beautiful, walkable streetscape highlights Downtown’s historic character and a diverse mix of specialty & service shops offering locally made goods, art, and unique finds. The local brewery, coffee house, bakery, and restaurants offer inviting spaces, a taste of Tarboro, and a friendly atmosphere where warm welcomes and connections are made. Throughout the year, cultural festivals feature live music, dancing, a variety of foods, and the chance to connect with the community.
The Economic Vitality Committee of the Tarboro Development Corporation has identified 12 property owners that have an interest in selling or are seeking partnering investors for their “opportunity spaces.” Each of the 12 properties will be open for viewing during this event. The event will allow you the chance to learn about the guidelines and benefits of utilizing historic tax credits and why Tarboro is a great place to invest.
