North Carolina did not have an official state building.
The state exhibited a strong exhibit of crops and produce in the Palaces of Agriculture and Horticulture.
In the Mines Palace, North Carolina's area he exhibit covered a floor space of about 2,200 square feet. It consisted of a full, systematic collection of the minerals of the State, a representation of the ores of gold, copper, silver, iron, nickel, and tin that are native to North Carolina, and a very full exhibit of the economic minerals. Also, the state exhibited: diamonds, garnets, beryls, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and other rare gems.
At the Palace of Agriculture, there were exhibits of special tobacco displays and the collection of grains and seeds in the main space.
North Carolina's display at the Department of Horticulture was small, because of a poor growing season that year.
The state's largest exhibit was at the Palace of Forestry, Fish, and Game.
