Peters said the society hoped to locate another facility to house the collection as it grow larger, or perhaps constructing one of its own. The society is presently involved with the Wilmington Community Enhancement Council which is investigating an improved Community Center.
The Wilmington Historical Society is continuing to grow and collect materials on the history of Wilmington and the surrounding area. We appreciate contributions to our collection, said Peters.
