Sandbar Lecture – Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens – The Jail that Became a Home by Christine Lamberton

June 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

 

If you are looking for evening entertainment ideas this summer, consider the Museum of Coastal Carolina’s Sandbar Lecture Series!

Every Tuesday at 6:00 pm throughout the summer, Sandbar Lectures celebrate eastern North Carolina’s rich history, unique coastal environment, and diverse wildlife. Local experts facilitate lively and interactive presentations about a variety of fascinating topics that inspire curiosity for all visitors.

This week, did you know that the Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens is the oldest and largest historic site open to the public in downtown Wilmington?

Director Christine Lamberton will explain how the Burgwin-Wright House is a testament to North Carolina’s colonial history and reveal how the state’s unique coastal environment affected the settlement, architecture, and culture of the Cape Fear area. Of eight colonial structures remaining in Wilmington, four are located on the Burgwin-Wright property: three 1744 stone buildings that served as the city jail and John Burgwin’s 1770 townhouse.
