Shallotte, North Carolina

The Town of Shallotte was incorporated on March 6, 1899. Prior settlement of the area dated back to around 1750 with an earlier reference to the River and the Town as early as 1734. In the early years, residents relied on agriculture, fishing and a bustling waterfront full of flatboats, rafts, and other small watercrafts used to transport goods to and from this rural part of Brunswick County. According to some accounts, the Town received its name from a traveler who crossed the river by ferry and referred to the river as "Charlotte" River. The Charlotte River later took on the name of the Shallotte River. The Town was later called Shallotte.

Brunswick County, North Carolina

Brunswick County was founded in 1764 from parts of New Hanover and Bladen Counties and was so named after King George I, Duke of Brunswick. The first permanent settlement dates back to 1713, but prior attempts date back to 1663, when a small group of New Englanders made their journey to the area. The group purchased thirty-two square miles of land from the local Native American tribe (The Cape Fear Indians) only to find that they were not satisfied with the area and decided to venture back to New England approximately two to three months later.
