Masonboro & Myrtle Grove

Masonboro

Most folks rarely stop and consider the rich history that is entrenched in the southern regions of New Hanover County. For example, did you know that Masonboro Sound is the oldest known coastal resort area in North Carolina? Even before the Revolutionary War, summer cottages dotted the banks along the Intracoastal Waterway, neighboring sounds and tidal creeks. Places such as Live Oaks and Cedar Grove were immensely popular destinations for the state's well-to-do residents and visitors. From the 1700s through the turn of the century, they came to Masonboro Sound for its scenic beauty; to escape the heat, breathe the sea air and splash in the salt water. At that time, it was believed that a seaside environment was a cure-all for a variety of ills, including malaria! (We still think there's a lot of truth to those ideas!)

Myrtle Grove

The Myrtle Grove area was once what Wilmington residents considered, "out in the country".

For decades, picturesque Myrtle Grove was filled with small family farms and modest homes. Many seafarers, riverboat captains and commercial fishermen lived in the rural enclave of Myrtle Grove. There were even several resident boat-building operations, including that of Tom Simmons. He was the designer of a local icon: the Simmons Sea Skiff.  

Today the neighborhoods of Masonboro Sound and Myrtle Grove are more popular than ever! Thankfully, all of the natural beauty that enticed folks here in the first place has been carefully preserved. Acres of pristine coastal forest, wetlands, and established hardwoods, many dripping with Spanish moss, still give these places a rustic, coastal feel. Although this part of New Hanover County experienced commercial growth at a somewhat slower rate than others, there is now an abundance of goods and services that makes living here extremely convenient!

Whether you settle down in an older subdivision along gorgeous Hewlett's Creek or opt for new construction in Tidal Walk or Georgetown, you're still minutes from shopping, dining, and entertainment venues, schools, grocery stores, banks, and medical facilities. Another plus is the close proximity to historic downtown Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Masonboro Island, and Carolina Beach!
