Kate Stuart – Legendary Lady of the Lower Cape Fear

Record #:
Kate Stuart is one of Southport's most colorful characters. Born at the Stuart House, a waterfront inn, she spent her entire life of eighty-five years there. In an era when women were limited to being wives and mothers, Stuart was known as a patron of the arts, a poet, confidant of Sidney Lanier, an accomplished educator, a leader in religious and civic affairs, an astute businesswoman, an outstanding innkeeper, and a woman who could hold her own in political discussions.
