Wilmington (NC) Then & Now
by Susan Taylor Block
Since 1739, Wilmington has seen centuries of change along the banks of the Cape Fear River to the beaches of the Atlantic. Through the years much has been lost to war, neglect, and progress, but in many places the past is well preserved and still visible today. The city’s enduring spirit is evident in these images of past and present.
