The City

The City of Southport (2,351 inhabitants in 2000; 5.9 sq. km), incorporated in 1792, is located in Brunswick County, North Carolina. Quoting Monica Celinski,
Quoting the municipal website:

"How Smithville became Southport", in "The Southport Times"
"Southport, North Carolina was founded in 1792 when Joshua Potts requested that the NC General Assembly commission the town. The town of Southport was originally named Smithville, named after Benjamin Smith, who had served in the Revolutionary War under George Washington. The town of Smithville began to grow as a fishing village and military town. After the Civil War, an effort was made to create a major southern port combining river and railroad transportation in Smithville. In 1887, the town was named Southport in anticipation of the area becoming a major port city. Southport never became a major port city, but it did gain a coaling dock for steamships and telegraph service."
