North Carolina is rich with culture and heritage, and Wilmington’s historical significance to our nation has spanned the centuries. The Port City continues to thrive today, just as it did during the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and WWII. The arts and culture of Wilmington have been influenced over the years by the changing tides, and currents of innumerable visitors that meet it.
