Does anyone know if Rocky Point and Burgaw are one in the same? I have an address that lists both as the city.

Thanks!

Sara

Burgaw is about 9 miles north of Rocky Point if that helps any.

It may be the address is right on the edge of both.

If you PM me, I can check it for you. Liz

Burgaw is 8 miles north of Rocky Point. Rocky Point is not a town but Burgaw is. Rocky point is 15 miles north of Wilmington.

Rocky Point may not be a town but it has it's own zip code separate from Burgaw. Someday, it may become it's own town.

Burgaw has a population of 16,395 as of the 2000 census, Rocky Point has a population of 5,847 as of the 2000 census.

Compare that to where I am, Belville which SHARES Leland's zip code. Belville IS a town and only has 285 people.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rocky Point becomes incorporated soon. Liz

Apparently, Rocky Point was incorporated in 1905, but the town's charter was repealed in 1945.
