This town is called " Heart of the Inner Banks" Established in 1776 on land donated by Col. James Bonner. It is the First city named after a president of the United States. In 1862, the town was occupied by union troops. and was shelled by ships from the river. Take a ride down Water street and you will see a house with a cannon ball still imbedded in the wall facing the river. The house in the picture was built by St. Peter's Episcopal Church as a rectory in 1906. The owner/Innkeeper is a wonderful hostess from Honduras, Virginia Finnery. We stayed there in April in the Dudley room and had a great afternoon wine and cheese party on the front porch, walked down to the waterfront for dinner and sat on a park bench just soaking in the evening looking out on the river. This is one of my favorite places in the state to visit.
