This month, the History Center sends out a very sweet shout to a local legend, Britt’s Donuts. Located at #11 The Boardwalk, Carolina Beach, NC, they have been cooking up smiles since 1939 when the Britt family along with the Wrights opened up Britt’s Donuts on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. Since selling the business to Bobby Nivens in 1974, they have not looked back. All of Federal Point, nay New Hanover County, looks forward to opening day each year.

Bobby-weigning-doughBe sure to go by and have a Boardwalk staple, a fresh hot sweet Britt’s donut and thank them again for supporting the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society each year as a Business Member.
