In 1800, Edmund Ogburn arrived in North Carolina from Pennsylvania and purchased 51 acres north of Salem from the Moravians. Ogburn and his descendants, who expanded the family property, were among North Carolina's first tobacco farmers. By 1840, the growing community became known as Ogburn Station, and with the coming of the railroad, it developed into a trading area for horses, cattle, and other goods. With time, Ogburn Station transitioned from a thriving farming community and rail stop into a lively commercial center.
