Chartered in 1858, Morehead City was founded on Sheppards Point. One of the first industries, the railroad, was established to link Morehead City to settlements along the Mississippi River. While this venture ultimately failed, a number of small houses and businesses were erected over the following decades. During the Civil War, many structures were used by Union soldiers who made additional improvements to infrastructure. Post-war, various civil works were erected to modernize the City.
