American individuals, families and communities are rapidly becoming more multi-racial and multi-cultural. While many think this is new, in northeastern North Carolina's Roanoke-Chowan area, there is a landowning mixed-race community that has been successful for centuries – the Winton Triangle. Even now, its experiences offer paths for America to follow.

Chowan Discovery researches, documents, preserves and presents the Winton Triangle’s history. We endeavor to work with those in and around the Winton Triangle to build vibrancy. Explore our offerings on this site to learn of Chowan Discovery’s work and the support we provide to the Winton Triangle and beyond!

One of Chowan Discovery's latest historical marker efforts:
