Town of Enfield ~ A Great Place to Live!

Founded in 1740, Enfield, North Carolina is the oldest town in Halifax County. In 1896, the opening of the Enfield Tobacco Market brought a glimmer of prosperity to this small town of 700 people (today 2300+). As the tobacco market grew, new businesses were established along with the Bank of Enfield, the oldest bank in Halifax County.

Peanuts, however, soon became the leading agricultural market in Enfield. The establishment of many buying and cleaning stations for peanuts soon made Enfield the world's largest raw peanut market. Every year, Enfield is host to the Peanut Festival. Family fun featuring good food, arts and crafts, carnival and amusements, music and dancing and, of course, the famous peanut — no small thing around here!

Enfield is easily accessible, only five miles from I-95 (Exit 154) and HWY 301 runs through our great town, so stop by and visit us.


Officer Worrell

The Town of Enfield is saddened by the unexpected and untimely death of our K9 Officer Timothy “TJ” Worrell, TJ served with the department since September 2019.  TJ is survived by his mother and young son; we asked that you keep his family, friends and the Enfield Police Department in your prayers.

There will be a Memorial Service for Officer T.J. Worrell on Friday September 25, 2020 at 3pm at the Enfield Municipal Building’s Parking Lot at 200 Whitfield Street in Enfield.

This will be an outdoor service. Mask and social distancing required.
