The Federal Point Historic Preservation Society will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, March 18, 7:30 pm at the Federal Point History Center, 1121-A North Lake Park Blvd., adjacent to Carolina Beach Town Hall.  Ann Hewlett Hutteman, local historian and writer will speak to us about the life and times of Captain John Harper, ship captain, land developer, and an important figure in the founding of Carolina Beach.  A sixth-generation Wilmingtonian, Ann attended Wilmington College and taught school in this area. Her father’s family, the Hewletts, have lived in the Masonboro Sound area since the American Revolution. Ann calls them “real clam diggers.” Ann’s book Wilmington, NC A Postcard History is a significant resource for people doing local history research. She has also written a number of local church histories and is an expert geneaologist.
