WILMINGTON, N.C. (CAPE FEAR WEEKEND) -
It’s 1818...more than 2 hundred years ago...and the Cape Fear Recorder has published quite a headline...
The new house up on the hill built by Mr. William Mckay is for rent!
And it sits on one of the most pleasant and healthy sites in town here on 11 south 5th avenue in Wilmington.
Mr. Mckay moved the original structure slightly and made some changes.
Then in 1838 a doctor James berry also did renovations....requiring a petition to the historic society which we actually still have copies of.
The home went through another major remodel in 1900, this time by Daniel O’Connor...a Wilmington realtor...who paid an impressive 3-thousand 800 dollars for it.
Since then the house has been through several evolutions but each owner has made a deliberate effort to incorporate and preserve parts of the original design.
Including the current owners...who are now onto their next chapter and that means there’s a rare opportunity to take your place in Wilmington’s history.
A special thank you to Casey Roman of Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage for showing us this wonderful piece of history.
