The 20 acres around the site of the historic Hickory Hall Plantation in Calabash, North Carolina, the "Seafood Capital of the World." It is an almost legendary destination for tens of thousands of visitors who frequent the beaches and resorts of southeastern North Carolina as well as Myrtle Beach, SC.
The goal of Hickory landing is to supplement and enrich the experience of visiting the main street of Calabash, River Road. Visitors will enter Hickory Landing directly from River Road, walking (or driving) past new shops and heading toward two new destinations:
1. Authentically restored and historic Hickory Hall, the oldest home in southeast Brunswick County, and its newly open-to-the-public gardens and dependencies, and
2. Hickory Landing, a walkable new neighborhood modeled after the authentic fishing villages of the southeast. Visitors will find a system of trails leading to a nature preserve and a coastal marsh and bird sanctuary and the Calabash River waterfront. They can also walk down sidewalks to the water past well detailed houses and cottages with large front porches — and friendly neighbors.
