Brick Structures

WILMINGTON HISTORIC & ARCHAEOLOGICAL DISTRICT

“With elegant plantation homes, historic buildings, and numerous attractions, Wilmington’s historic district is one of the most beloved parts of the city. Bound by Wright, S. 7th and Harnett Sts., and the Northeast Cape Fear River, this largely commercial district has been growing since the early 1700s and features a variety of architectural styles as well as underwater archaeological sites.” (Source)

I am a huge fan of history, as well as brick structures. Wilmington, at one time, was home of the Masons and you can see much of their handiwork in the historical district’s architecture. This water front city has amazing sights to see, a stroll through the streets does not disappoint. If you visit you are bound to see a touring horse drawn trolly. There is also a tour from the water on a tug boat that is offered. Lots of great sights, free offerings, as well as shopping and food. You will find Wilmington is an easy hour and half drive north, from Myrtle Beach, SC.

  6. I have not visited Delaware in over 20 years. It’s not that far from Princeton. Perhaps on our drive down to Charlotte, we’ll plan a stop and visit some of the structures you photographed.
