About This Place
Cameron is a town in Moore County, North Carolina in the United States. The population was 151 at the 2000 census.
Cameron grew up around a plank road that was followed in later years by a railroad. The town was planned in 1875 and incorporated in 1876. Cameron was at the end of the Raleigh and Augusta Railroad. Its location made it an ideal place of entrepenuers to establish businesses. They built turpentine distilleries, established mercantile and hotel businesses to serve the needs of the railroad's customers and built a thriving dewberry farming and consignment operation. The dewberry became so important that Cameron was known as the "Dewberry Capital of the World."
