THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Introduction

             Quite typical of the southern States, manufactured gas had not been well developed in North Carolina, in ante bellum  days and the long reconstruction period did not surface enough outside financing to bring artificial gas to its full potential. As elsewhere, manufactured gas as a residential and heating fuel came to North Carolina along with the general 1910 trend throughout North America. It appears that there was a strong bias toward coal-gas originally, but that the 20th century plants may have favored carburetted water gas. Expect to find gas producers to have been in general use, especially within the textile industry. In the buildup, however, there was a strong municipal ownership in the State and some 267 workers were reported employed in 1923, for an annual salary of $ 350,000 at municipal gas plants (Ind. & Engr. Chem., 1923, p. 5).
