Wednesday, August 22nd -Mapping Bald Head's Development 

Within the Old Baldy Foundation's archives is a collection of maps depicting the ecological and developmental changes wrought on the Smith Island Complex. August’s Historic Happy Hour will feature maps not typically on exhibition. The maps include Union and Confederate topographical maps, abandoned plot maps from the Palmetto Island development of the 1920s, and early locator maps produced by Carolina Cape Fear Corporation. Join us in exploring how Bald Head has changed (or remained the same) throughout the past four centuries!
