"Caswell Series: Blacktop"

This small house was one of three on the Cape Fear River where it enters the Atlantic. It was built long after the fort was out of use as a dormitory for the NC Baptist Assembly, which maintained the grounds and buildings and gave a lot of people some great memories of time spent on the island! Remnants of the fort are all around - there is a powerful sense of history there.

"Blacktop" will soon be available as a print. The original is in a private collection.
