About Wilmington, North Carolina
Near the mouth of the Cape Fear River in coastal southeastern North Carolina lies the county seat of New Hanover County, Wilmington. Over 100,000 Wilmingtonians populate the city, which stretches over more than 40 square miles.
Wilmington was incorporated around 1739. Before receiving its final name, Wilmington was known as New Liverpool, New Town and Newton. Eventually it was given its final name to honor Spencer Compton, Earl of Wilmington, who was a patron of Gabriel Johnston, then North Carolina’s governor.
The town began as a port for maritime businessmen searching for another link to the Atlantic Ocean. Despite a number of initial difficulties such as fires and poor road conditions, Wilmington became North Carolina’s largest town in 1840. The town continued to grow rapidly, and Wilmington grew as a major exporter of products such as lumber, tar, pitch, rosin and turpentine. Many major railroads established terminuses in the town, such as the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad and the Wilmington and Manchester Railroad.
Wilmington has a rich history, but it is now known for a number of features, including its designation by Congress as a “Coast Guard City” for its status as the homeport of the USCGC Diligence, a United State Coast Guard vessel. It is also the home of the World War II battleship, USS North Carolina, which is open to the public as a war memorial.
Wilmington is also known as a center for movies and television. An EUE/Screen Gems Studio is located in Wilmington, and this studio is the largest domestic television and movie production facility outside of California. The television show One Tree Hill was mostly filmed around Wilmington. The studio also produced the movie Iron Man 3 and the television series Revolution.
The city is the home basketball legend Michael Jordan and several other celebrities, athletes and historical figures. Some other famous Wilmingtonians include gold medal boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, actor James Van Der Beek and 28th U.S. President Woodrow Wilson.
Residents of Wilmington occupy an array of zip codes from 28401 to 28412.
