Southport Historical Society, City Partner on Garrison House Project

January 27, 2012 - Southport, NC - The Southport Historical Society announced they have partnered with the City of Southport in transforming the Garrison House into the City's Visitor Center and Museum. This is truly an "historical" moment for the City as this iconic house will finally be open to the public and developed to showcase the unique history of Southport and Fort Johnston.

The Society has recently appointed Don Parker to lead the effort in developing the museum and the east wing which has been ear-marked for sole use by the Society. He is seeking the support of those within the Society who share his passion for making the Garrison House a central attraction and an enduring building in Southport of which we can all be proud.

If you would like to contribute your time and effort to this project, please contact Don at 253-9703 or email at dparker14@ec.rr.com. There will be opportunities to lend assistance in the creative development of the museum as well as the physical improvement of the building itself.

We look forward to this new challenge and this opportunity to make a significant contribution to this place where it all started.
