Did you know?

The city of Wilmington sits on the east bank of the Cape Fear River, which flows out into the Atlantic Ocean, some 25 miles further south at Cape Fear. The cape is a prominent headland which juts into the ocean at the bottom end of Bald Head Island. The cape's name comes from the 1585 expedition of Sir Richard Grenville. His ship narrowly avoided being wrecked near the cape, in consequence of which Cape Fear was so named. It is one of the oldest surviving English place names in the United States.
