Norlina was first called the "Ridgeway Junction" in 1837. As a railroad passed through this area, many citizens started to sell wood and water to the railroad. Eventually this began to expand, and in the 1860s the name changed to the "Woodyard". By the 1870s, the area had grown in business, and was referred to as the "Junction". The Seaboard & Raleigh Railroad had just been formed, and the "Junction" was now thriving with its business. A small community was formed, including two hardware stores, a horse drawn taxi service, and smithing shops. By 1900, John Williams established the Seaboard Air Line Railway and it grew to over 4,680 miles. This small group of people had turned the railway stop into a real town. In 1913 the name Norlina was coined, being a portmanteau of the beginning of "North" and the ending of "Carolina".
