Wilson County - Region 10
On the northwest side of Region 10 lies Wilson County, once known back in the 19th century as “The World’s Greatest Tobacco Market”. Now Wilson is known for its diverse economy based on agriculture, manufacturing, commercial, and service businesses. Another point of interest is the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park, where people can go admire the beauty of an artist’s refurbished handmade creations in the heart of downtown Wilson. Just down the road a couple of miles from downtown, you can find the Wilson County Health Department.
