Wilmington NC’s popular village community, River Bluffs, is located in southeastern North Carolina– an area rich in history.

“The South will come into its own when its fields are green in winter.” This saying from Hugh MacRae, a 20th century Wilmington area land owner and developer, sums up why the Cape Fear Area was popular then, and why it’s still popular today.

The town of Castle Hayne, built on farming, became one of the most successful farming areas in the whole southeast. Plantation owners called Castle Hayne their country home place and used the lumber industry to fuel the economy both before and after the American Revolution.

Wilmington, NC, named a Distinctive Destination City by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is one of North Carolina’s most popular destinations. Wilmington was incorporated in 1739 and is nicknamed The Port City because of its coastal location directly on the Cape Fear River which opens into the nearby Atlantic Ocean.

Historic downtown Wilmington hosts a variety of truly magnificent historic venues such as Thalian Hall, a 155 year old historic theater located in the heart of downtown, delightful and delicious restaurants, a scenic riverwalk and numerous unique shopping experiences.

The River Bluffs lifestyle is about living life to the fullest and 2016 promises to be the best one yet for this growing village community.
