4th Grade Students Learn About People

Carolina Beach Elementary School’s Fourth Grade Students visited the Burgwin Wright House and the Cape Fear Museum. The Burgwin Wright House is the largest National Register Historic District in the state of North Carolina. Within those 200 square blocks are hundreds of historic buildings from the 19th and early 20th centuries, but a scant three homes survive from the colonial era. Only one of these, the Burgwin-Wright House, circa 1770 is open to the public. Operated as a museum house, it provides the only local venue where the public can view an example of Georgian architecture. For more information visit
