J. C. B. Ehringhaus

Governor, 1933-1937, friend of education, member of General Assembly, solicitor. Birthplace 1/4 mile north.

This historical marker is located on NC 34 (Water Street) in Elizabeth City in Pasquotank County. It was erected in 1951. The date on the marker is 1977.

The North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources has an essay on J. C. B. Ehringhaus, from which the following is excerpted:

A fiscal conservative, John Christoph Blucher Ehringhaus (1882-1949) balanced the state’s budget during the worst economic crisis since Reconstruction while offering nominal if unenthusiastic support for the initiatives of the New Deal. The "Depression Governor" was born in Elizabeth City on February 5, 1882.

Proud of the history of the Albemarle region of North Carolina and of his own German ancestry, Blucher Ehringhaus, as he was known, was the son of merchant Erskine Ehringhaus and the former Catherine Matthews. Educated in local schools, he was graduated from Atlantic Collegiate Institute in 1898 and from the University of North Carolina in 1901. Two years later, Ehringhaus received his law degree in Chapel Hill and returned to his hometown to practice. In 1912 he married Matilda Haughton of Washington County; they would have three children.
