Conetoe is a charming community located in Southeastern Edgecombe County along the Conetoe Creek. History finds itself restored in the plantation homes of the Wilkinson-Dozier House and the Worsley-Burnette House, both on the National Register of Historic Places. The Wilkinson-Dozier House, built around 1815, is a two-story three bay by two bay, Federal style frame dwelling. The Worsley-Burnette House, built around 1830, is a two-story Federal style frame dwelling with a hall-and-parlor plan.

Conetoe is proud to be home of Rev. Richard Joyner, pastor of Conetoe Missionary Bapist Church, and the Conetoe Family Life Center. Rev. Joyner was recognized as a 2015 CNN Top 10 Hero for his work in establishing the center and making Conetoe the heart of a national movement to promote healthy living. The Conetoe Family Life Center brings together students and community members to grow and distribute 50,000 pounds of fresh food a year. You are invited to visit, support, and contribute hand-in-hand with your fellow neighbor as the communtity closes the gap between health and hunger.
