Did you know Onslow County was actually a part of New Hanover County “back in the day”. It was named in for Arthur Onslow who was in the British Parliament. Would you have guessed that Jacksonville was named to honor President Andrew Jackson in 1842?  Wantland’s Ferry, which was already established, would become Jacksonville in 1849.

It’s also of interest that hogs and oysters were a mainstay of the area from the beginning!

Everything changed after December 15, 1940.  Camp Lejeune would be located in Onslow County…only days less than a year before Pearl Harbor.

The DOD brought workers and those workers brought families. These citizens needed commerce!

Jacksonville has continued to grow. The military presence notwithstanding, a bustling commercial industry, a growing local restaurant menu, as well as resale and new home communities providing housing for military, government, and private enterprise continues to enhance the lifestyle of the citizens of Onslow County!

Located in coastal North Carolina, you have your choices of beaches. From Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle to the northeast to Topsail Island in the southeast, beaches are just a day trip. Many even live at one of these coastal towns and work in Jacksonville.
