Histories and Mysteries Beneath the Cape Fear River

Monday, May 6, 2013 10:00a to 12:00p
UNCW-OLLI Wilmington, NC

During the 19th century, the Cape Fear River saw daily industrial activity including traffic to turpentine distilleries, naval stores warehouses and shipyards. While there may be few obvious remnants of these activities visible, a closer look reveals abundant physical evidence in the form of old wharves, steam boats, tugboats, ferries and barges. Explore the history and mysteries that lie beneath the dark waters of the Cape Fear River with Capt. Doug Springer and Richard Lawrence.
