The 1924 Bordeaux Cottage has been moved, the pilings set and the building lowered to its proper height!!!!

Saving an historic building – The 1924 Ewing- Bordeaux Cottage, originally located at 405 N. Lumina Avenue, along with its neighbor, the Williams-Bordeaux, were the oldest fully-intact structures  north of Stone Street. They are the last two of six cottages that survived the Great Fire of 1934. Currently the greatest threat to historic cottages is the steady rise in property values and demand for development. Moving the Ewing- Bordeaux Cottage saved a rare example of local Wrightsville Beach architecture of which only a handful remain and transition it into a public building to be enjoyed on a much wider scale.

Growing the museum Not only has moving the Ewing-Bordeaux cottage allowed the Wrightsville Beach Museum to preserve this special building, but it also made it possible for the Museum to expand its programs, exhibits and other services to the community. The cottage is allowing our growing project, the Waterman Hall of Fame, to have a permanent home to celebrate water sports and professions that are so important to our community and celebrate those who make positive contributions to our way of life. This is an exciting time in the life of the museum as this cottage allows us to grow our outdoor teaching spaces and indoor experiential learning resources.
