Description: Color print. This map was prepared by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Chemistry and Soils, in cooperation with the N. C. Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station. The soil survey was undertaken in 1929 by R. C. Jurney of the U. S. Department of Agriculture and W. A. Davis and J. J. Morgan of the North Carolina agencies. The soil inspection was by W. Edward Hearn. It portrays Craven County and shows the area and distribution of soil types in the county. Roads, railroads, cities and towns, churches, schools, and other components of the built environment are also shown. Legends reporting the colors used to indicate the various types of soil and the symbols used to note churches, schools, etc., appear on the center right and in the lower left corner of the map. The extreme western part of the county is shown as an inset in the upper right corner.
