PREFACE 



(Furnished by Chamber of Commerce.) 



A city strategically situated on the Cape Fear River, blessed by 
nature with a variety of resources and kept up-to-date by the hand 
of man. It possesses both trunk line rail and deep water trans- 
portation, which gives it low freight rates and permits quick freight 
movements in great volume. 

It is both important as a port and an industrial city, while it is 
the pivotal point for a rich and large agricultural area, and is the 
trading center for fully 350,000 people, the city being their nearest, 
as well as largest market. 

As a port, it possesses a fresh water harbor 28 miles from the bar. 
Ice is an unknown quantity in the river, which has a deep water 
channel, up and down which go big ocean steamers, bound for Europe, 
Latin America and other foreign shores. 

Its exportations and importations are large and ever growing, 
which mark a successful port. As a cotton port it yearly sends forth 
approximately two hundred thousand bales per year, and this record 
is evidently going to be surpassed. Its imports cover a large field in 
variety and come from practically every quarter of the globe. 

Within the past year or two the population of Wilmington has in- 
creased in a tremendous way, and it is now a city of about 40,000 
population, housed in comfortable homes. To accommodate the in- 
creasing population not only have individuals built homes, but the 
citizens formed what is known as the Victory Home Company, with 
an authorized capital of a million dollars and PAID IN OF $250,000.00 
to erect houses, which object has been successfully carried out. 

Regardless of conditions following the war the year 1923 has al- 
ready witnessed preparations for big building operations. Among 
recent enterprises located here are several large new fertilizer fac- 
tories, a large readi-cut house plant of the Aladdin Company, the 
Atlantic Refining Company, the Galena Signal Oil Company, the 
American Molasses Company, Wilmington Wood Products Co., 
Southland Mfg. Co., Weller Pickle Co., Wilmington Stove Corp., 
Dupont Nitrates Co., W. R. Grace & Company and others, thus 
supplementing the city's already large number of such industries. 

The natural gateway of North and South Carolina, intermediate 
between the whole territory and Richmond. 

Wilmington is North Carolina's seaport city, the gateway of her 
commerce and trade. North Carolina is a vast State in area, larger 
than New York or Pennsylvania, and almost as large as New Eng- 
land. Wilmington is the natural distributing point for North Caro- 
lina and parts of South Carolina and Georgia. Think what it would 
mean if all of New England had only one such distributing seaport, 
and it will then be realized why Wilmington must grow and is grow- 
ing to meet the demands of this vast territory whose bountiful natural 
resources have hardly been touched. 

From the Middle West the Panama Canal is in more direct com-

munication via Wilmington than by any other South Atlantic sea- 
port, and cargoes to and from Wilmington will not be subject to 
the dangers of Cape Hatteras. 

Wilmington is the center of the greatest vegetable producing dis- 
trict in the United States. A few years ago no strawberries were 
raised except for domestic use; now WILMINGTON IS THE 
CENTRE OF LARGEST STRAWBERRY RAISING DISTRICT 
IN THE WORLD. It is the LARGEST LETTUCE PRODUCING 
DISTRICT IN THE WORLD, and next to the largest peanut market. 

Wilmington's outlets by rail and water are the Atlantic Coast 
Line and Seaboard Air Line systems, Wilmington, Brunswick and 
Southern Railway, the Clyde Steamship Line to New York and the 
Carolina Company, operating foreign freight service. 

Wilmington has a wonderful climate; no extreme heat or extreme 
cold. Average summer temperature, 78 degrees; average winter 
temperature, 48 degrees. The normal rainfall is 5L05 inches, aver- 
age annual clear days, 132 (New York, rainfall 44 inches; clear days, 
118; New Orleans, rainfall 57 inches; clear days, 109). The mild 
climate and diversified opportunities make this city and section a 
haven for homeseekers. 

The Wilmington district is one of the greatest trucking regions 
in the United States, and the yield for this early crop reaches the 
sum of nearly fifteen million annually. 

Nearest Atlantic port to the Ohio gateways, and nearer Cincin- 
nati than Charleston by fifteen miles and Savannah by thirty miles. 

One of the largest distributing points south of Baltimore for pro- 
ducts of the Standard Oil Company. 

Has immense terminals that can load sixteen ocean-going ships 
at one time, providing them with over 600,000 square feet of ware- 
house space. 

In the war had two immense shipyards, properties having been 
converted into industrial and civil uses. Had the honor of pos- 
sessing the only Government-owned steel shipyard in South, and first 
Government-owned concrete yard in country. 

The commerce on the Cape Fear river at and below Wilmington 
in 1925-6 averaged approximately 800,000 tons, with valuation of 
more than 67,000,000. 

South of Hatteras, thus assuring safety to vessels from Latin 
America and other countries to the south of the United States, and 
occupies strategic position of advantage to such countries. 

River never has ice, which permits year 'round navigation, and 
climate is never too cold to make work outdoors a hardship or dis- 
comfort. 

Has many fertilizer factories, petroleum products terminals, lum- 
ber plants and a number of fish factories, employing thousands of men. 

Has handsomest custom house in the South, the cost of which was 
more than $700,000. 

Next terminal of inland waterway canal, this link being from 
Beaufont to the Cape Fear river. Board of Engineers has recom- 
mended extension, work on which will start at once.

PREFACE— Continued. 



Wilmington has two immense cotton compresses and a marine 
railway. The steel shipyard operated during the war by the George 
A. Fuller Company is being converted into an industrial centre. 
The concrete shipyard property is owned by the city and will be 
developed into municipal wharves and public terminals and ware- 
houses. This has been offered the State of North Carolina as a 
location for State-owned terminals and warehouses. 

With both water and rail transportation, thus affording quick 
hauls and low freight rates, and near the scenes of raw material, Wil- 
mington is a splendid spot for manufacturing industries. Two big 
railroad systems — the Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line — 
place the city near the great coal fields and the iron producing zones. 

Wilmington has manufacturing plants of many kinds, cotton, gar- 
ment mills, wood and metal works, cement concerns, cotton fac- 
tories, candy factories, readi-cut house plant, modern machine shops, 
many big fertilizer factories, saw mills, oil stations, etc. 

Two packing plants are located here. One, costing half million 
dollars, with a slaughtering capacity of one thousand hogs per day, 
is now complete and ready for operation. 

Second distributing point for fertilizer in the South. Has many 
immense fertilizer factories and two others have recently been built. 

Leading banking center of State, its banks having total resources 
of approximately, $28,000,000. Growing steadily all the time. 

Jobbing business goes over $80,000,000 annually, and retail mer- 
chants do wide business, as city is trading mecca for a section of over 
350,000 people. 

City of big weekly pay rolls. Annual pay rolls upward of $13,- 
000,000, distributed among thousands of employes. 

Headquarters of Atlantic Coast Line System, employing about 
fifteen hundred men and women. Monthly pay roll of Coast Line 
nearly $400,000. 

Wonderful all year round climate and a health record praised by 
the United States Government. 

The Wilmington section has crop growing days to the number of 
250, which is the equal of Northern Mexico, though with the advan- 
tage of an ample and equitable rainfall. 

Wilmington is terminus of six major highways of North Carolina's 
splendid good road system, and the city is also an important point 
on the Atlantic Coastal Highway extending from Portland, Maine, 
to Miami, Fla., and the Calhoun Highway from Athens, Ga., to the 
ocean at Wilmington. 

City of fine streets, beautiful homes, great churches and modern 
schools. In a county netted by good roads, the superior not to be 
found anywhere. 

Place of modern amusements, with best beach resorts on South 
Atlantic Coast within thirty minutes' ride of the city. 

Most popular beaches on South Atlantic, almost on threshold of city. 

A metropolis with a Chamber of Commerce aroused to the city's 
great advantages and eager to answer all questions and extend hearty 
co-operation. Write the Chamber of Commerce for any information 
desired.

No other medium can tell so fully of its wonder- 
ful growth, its opportunities and its possibilities for
