Welcome to the NEW OldWilmington

In 2024, we will celebrate our 25th year on the Internet. When we look back to June 25, 1999, the digital world was a lot different compared to today. So, we wanted to bring our website up to todays world with many new and exciting changes. To begin, the "Nostalgia Page", which is what brought this website into being, is still present and will be greatly expanded with more up-to-date data. With the help from site visitors providing photos, images have expanded ten fold. An important item to mention is the era which the website covers. Instead of the middle decades, it now covers 1900 to 2000 +/-.
