“Second to none”
Wilmington, North Carolina was first settled by the English in the 1720s. The initial name of the settlement was New Carthage, but Wilmington received its namesake from Spencer Compton, the 1st Earl of Wilmington. As a major port town, Wilmington’s economy was fueled by naval stores and lumber. It played an especially important role during the Revolutionary War as a springboard for regional leaders to rally support against the British.
After the Revolutionary War, Wilmington would go on to become an important Confederate naval base during the Civil War. Though the city was recaptured by Union forces in the late winter of 1865, many of Wilmington’s historic streets and buildings were spared from the conflict and can be viewed today by locals and visitors alike.
Historic districts to meander through, a vibrant downtown, and a sparkling harbor are just a few hallmarks of Wilmington, North Carolina. This cozy port city is rich with American history and Southern charm, just two aspects that make it a leading destination for travelers of all types.
Located along Cape Fear River and the terminus city of the Interstate 40, visitors to this wonderful port town can divide their time evenly between learning more about the city’s historical roots or enjoying the seaside views of one of the South’s most premier waterfronts.
