Picture of Welcome to Historic Swansboro Real Estate Sign

The historic town of Swansboro has developed an impressive reputation for itself over the years. Built around the mouth of the White Oak River and bordered by the river and the Intracoastal Waterway, Swansboro has a rich history and a number of water-related activities that make it a popular tourist destination. Coldwell Banker Fountain has helped a number of homebuyers find and buy ideal Swansboro Real Estate.

Swansboro History

If you are a history buff, you will be impressed by the number of historical buildings that have been preserved. Swansboro's earliest settlement was erected in 1730 at the mouth of the White Oak River, and roughly 30 years later it became an active port town. In 1783 the town was incorporated and named for former North Carolina House of Commons Speaker Samuel Swann.

For most of their early history, Swansboro residents relied upon shipping as their main industry, and the first steamboat ever constructed in North Carolina was built and launched in Swansboro. The Great Depression put a halt to the shipping trade, however, and Swansboro citizens turned to commercial fishing as their new industry, becoming quite successful over the next few years. While the developments of military bases and camps throughout the region brought economic growth during World War II, Swansboro has continued to rely on its modest fishing industry and tourism.

Swansboro TourismPicture of Swansboro Homes Festival

Swansboro's tourism industry is extensive, especially for a town of under 2,700 people. The town has taken advantage of the beauty of its natural surroundings, and hiking, boating, and fishing are all popular activities around Swansboro. The nearby Hammocks Beach State Park provides some of the best hiking and natural scenery in the region. The beaches at Hammocks Beach State Park are only accessible by ferry or by private boat, so they remain pristine and uncrowded even during the busy summer season.

The Swansboro "Arts by the Sea" festival, held every June, is another popular activity for visitors and residents alike, showing the talents of Swansboro's many local artisans. Other summer activities include the summer concerts, part of the "Swan Fest" concert series put on by the Seaside Arts Council.

For the more retail minded, Swansboro offers many shops and restaurants that promote the small town atmosphere while meeting the needs of visitors and residents.
