Anyone who travels into one county in the east will notice they're celebrating an important milestone .
Workers placed new signs along the county lines, saying Pitt County turns 250 years old this year.
The semi-quincenntial events kicked off two weeks ago, but will last all year long.
This is just one part of the way the county hopes commemorate its history. A 250 year old birthday dinner is slated for March 25 at Yankee Hall.
Tickets are available through the Historical Society.
