Pamlico County Honor Roll, Bayboro
The memorial to Pamlico County war dead is a granite stele on a double base. On top of the stele is a stars and stripes crest centered between two scrolls. Four bronze plaques on the stele list the names of war dead from World Wars One and Two, Korea and Vietnam. A fifth plaque on the upper base list Merchant Marine dead. Horizontally above the four stele plaques appear the words PAMLICO COUNTY and HONOR ROLL. The words WORLD WAR I and II run vertically and then the words KOREA and VIETNAM run horizontal at the monument's mid-point. The wording was formed in the stone by cutting away the background leaving bold, block lettering. When placed the monument was to World War One and Two war dead. At some point after 1972 the Korean, Vietnam and Merchant Marine plaques were added along with Korea and Vietnam being cut into the stone.

The book “Pamlico County, 100 Years, 1872-1972” (Bayboro, NC: Pamlico County Historical Society, 1972) incorrectly credits the memorial to the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
The monument is located at the Pamlico County Courthouse, 202 Main Street in Bayboro, NC. It stands to the right of the entrance. The Pamlico County Confederate Memorial is to the left of the building entrance.
The marker sits on the front lawn of the courthouse building.
The Pamlico County Veterans Council holds its Memorial Day ceremony in front of the County courthouse.
