Areas with Lifestyle "Historic"


We are lucky to live in an area rich with history. Wilmington is one of the oldest cities in North Carolina and alone has seven districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This gives home buyers numerous opportunities to purchase properties with unique architecture and character, including Queen Anne’s, Victorians, Tudors, Prairie Styles, Colonials, and post-World War bungalows. Many homes can be found in the primary Historic District while others are located in Greater Wilmington historic communities.
