History & History Related Items

Holly Ridge history:

Approx. fifty years ago, around the early 1950's, thousands of army and navy troops lived at Camp Davis, a now abandoned military base across US Highway 17 across from the town. Missile testing on nearby Topsail Island was based at Holly Ridge, and the town was once considered as a possible site for the U.S. space program. The missile project that evolved into the space program moved south to Florida, however, and Holly Ridge was soon viewed as a ghost town.
