The Southport Historical Society, with the support of the City of Southport, has reopened orders for the popular Memorial Brick Program. Memorial bricks may be purchased in memory or recognition of a person, organization, or event of personal significance. The new bricks will be laid in the walkway in front of Ft. Johnston on the historic Southport waterfront.
Orders for personalized bricks will be taken through December 31st, 2018. Placement of the newly ordered bricks will be in early spring 2019.
The Southport Historical Society was organized in 1976 to preserve and interpret the unique history of Southport, North Carolina. Some of the programs initiated and supported by the society are:
In addition to the activities noted above, the Society recently replaced historical markers throughout the City, at an expense in excess of $15,000. The Society also provides support to other local organizations and projects working to preserve the history of Southport. The Memorial Brick Program is your chance to add your personalized support to help the Society continue to play an important role in keeping Southport’s history alive.
Please support the Southport Historical Society, as well as the City of Southport, while at the same time memorializing a person, organization, or event of personal significance to you!
