 New Office
 In       February, Historic Wilmington Foundation relocated its
          headquarters to the Superintendent’s Lodge in the
  Wilmington National Cemetery. The Cemetery dates back to 1867
  and was recognized on the National Register of Historic Places in
  1997. The two-story lodge was constructed in 1934 to house the
  superintendent. The new location is also surrounded by four National
  Register Districts-Carolina Heights, Carolina Place, Westbrook-
  Ardmore and the Mansion District. The Foundation looks forward to
  the New Year in a new, but historic location. Our contact information
  remains the same, but our mailing address has changed:

        2011 Market Street, Wilmington, NC 28403
         Please come and visit us in our new location!

Downtown Post Office Receives Carr Memorial Plaque
The 75-year-old US Post Office & Federal Building at 152 N. Front Street was
awarded the James D. & Rosalie W. Carr Memorial Plaque in May. Each year,
Historic Wilmington Foundation selects one historically significant building to
receive the Carr Memorial Plaque. The historic Post Office building was
constructed in 1936-1937, and provided employment during the Great
Depression. This very special site is the first Federal Building in New Hanover
County to receive a Historic Wilmington Foundation plaque. The Post Office’s
colorful history is augmented by the beautiful works of art commissioned
by the US Government. The downtown US Post Office and Federal Building
continues to serve our community for its 75th year and holds historic elements
invaluable to understanding Wilmington as it is today.

Tar Heels Educates
the Next Generation
of Preservationists!
Since fall 2009, Historic Wilmington Foundation
has collaborated with the New Hanover County
Schools to bring more history, historic preservation,
architecture and cultural awareness into the lives of
third graders. The Tar Heels Go Walking program
earned the Gertrudes Carraway Award of Merit from
Preservation North Carolina for our outstanding
commitment to promoting historic preservation. Over the past two years, HWF has led more than 100 public school
tours and 7 tours for private schools; more than 2300 enthusiastic third graders took the Tar Heels tour last fall, and more
than 4700 students total have participated.
