Wilmington, North Carolina has a truly fascinating history that dates back to its establishment in 1739. However, it was not until the late 19th century that the area really began to grow and develop as a manufacturing powerhouse. From then through the 1920s, Wilmington's role as a major industrial center was very much in full swing; railroads were being built, new business and manufacturing companies opened up shop in the city, and new schools and hospitals got their start. This period of time was capped off by the creation of University of North Carolina at Wilmington campus in 1947. Since that era, Wilmington has remained one of North Carolina’s premier cities with a booming economy, bustling cultural scene and vibrant nightlife. Over the years the city has maintained its unique Southern charm while still embracing modern times with innovative businesses starting up all around it. From an exciting past to a bright future - there's no question why Wilmington is such a beloved place!
