Abstract:
Swansboro in Onslow County is OUR STATE magazine's Tar Heel town of the month. Visitors are attracted to the town by its sense of history, quiet atmosphere, restaurants, and unique shopping. Restored buildings of a century ago house many shops. A statue of the town's most famous citizen, Otway Burns, a privateer during the War of 1812, stands in the Bicentennial Park.
