Historic Homes of Southport {Part 3}

Thanks for sharing!

As summer begins to come to an end, I thought I should share the third and final part to the Historical Homes of Southport.

The official date for the start of Autumn may be September 22nd, but in South Carolina, we can still have summer temperatures well into October during the days.

If you missed the first 2 parts you can find them here:

You can also find a couple of other posts on Southport and the set of the movie, Safe Haven here.

I know you just want to look at the photos, so I will keep the writing to a minimum for this post.

 I love the aqua blue color of this house.

This is the view from the Southport waterfront to Bald Head Island.

 There are several inns that you can stay in while visiting. This one is quite lovely!

Even new construction houses are built to blend in with the historical ones.

There is a row of newer homes in this area of the waterfront.

 This row of cottages sits up on a hill overlooking the ocean.

Around the corner is the historic cemetery. It is an interesting stroll.

Almost every home has a large covered sitting porch.

Walking the sidewalks really gives you an up-close view of the details of the homes.

Another historic B&B-

The downtown area really has that small town feel. Many people retire here and just love it. I'm ready to move now!

Also on OSH!  Merry Christmas from Our Southern Home

This house is on a side street and caught my eye. Love the low country feel.

Most of the homes show their American pride with our flag.

The tour would not be complete without showing you one of the historic churches. If you watch Under the Dome on CBS, you will see this church and many of the historic sites in Southport.

  1. I live in the UK and was reading about hurricane Florence which is due to hit the Carolinas anytime now. One article was about a lady who was evacuating her home on bald head island. I was inquisitive to see what it looked like….absolutely stunning from your pictures. Thankyou for sharing them.

  2. love your tour of my home tour. i enjoyed looking at your blog, but can you please not have so many pop ups its ruins you website.

  3. This is great work done. These are wonderful house pictures. I am impressed by all. I love everything about the house, the furnishing and art, the front porch. It looks more elegant and rich.

    1. Thanks so much, Shannah! I never tire when we are there of looking at them. Love old houses, too! Have a great day!! ~Christy

  4. Loved the whole series. Even though I live in an old home, I still love to look at other old homes to see just how people are decorating them, especially the porch! I walk the streets of Charleston just to see what I might copy. I’m Bad!!

  5. Southport was always a quaint, unique town. Is this Southport Times a new newspaper. Is there still a Southport Pilot newspaper? When I was in high school, Southport was always our ally; built many friendships through sport events with Southport kids. I’ve seen this town after Hurricane Hazel hit it and it took quite a beating. Same way with Johnny Mercer’s pier at Wrightsville Beach. The orginal owner has this belief that “The Lord giveth and the lord taketh away.” He rebuilt that pier many times over and ended up dying in an automobile accident I think.

    1. Hi, Betty! It is always such a pleasure hearing from you. The newspapers you mentioned are still in print. I think the Pilot is just the Pilot now. Maybe you can visit Southport again soon! Have a lovely day! ~Christy

    1. Thanks so much, Cindy! This series was based on a walk that my daughter and I took over the course of 2 evenings. I sure would loved to have peeked inside as well! ~Christy
