Burke County is a county located in the U.S. state of North Carolina. As of 2000, the population was 89,148. Its county seat is Morganton. The symbol of Burke County is Table Rock. The first European settlement in the interior of North Carolina and what became the United States was made by Spanish in 1567, when they built Fort San Juan at the large Native American settlement of Joara near present-day Morganton. They renamed the settlement Cuenca. In 1568 the natives killed the Spanish and burned the fort. The Spanish never returned to this area, and it was centuries before the next Europeans tried to settle there. Burke County is part of the Hickory–Lenoir–Morganton Metropolitan Statistical Area.
