In 1967, John H. Foard founded the Blockade Runner Museum near Carolina Beach. The American Association for State and Local History commended the museum for its contributions to the study of local history. Though the museum drew visitors from all over the U.S., it was closed in 1982, by new owners. Most of the stock in the museum was already privately owned and to save it from being split up and sold, The New Hanover County Museum Foundation has been raising money from area residents to keep the collection together.
