On behalf of the City of Whiteville, Welcome!

I would like to welcome you to the City and our website. The citizens of Whiteville have a great amount of pride in their city.  Whiteville was established in 1833 and is a little City nestled on the railroad line mingled with history.  Small town pride blended with that family-oriented aura fold together to create a charming, quaint southern city with a story to tell that is rich in history, culture, and legend. The City of Whiteville is home to the NC Pecan Harvest Festival.  We are recognized as a friendly community, wherechildren and youth can grow and develop. It is a wonderful location for retirement due to our geographical location. The City is approximately forty-five minutes away the cities of Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC.  Fishing and hunting thrive, without effort, in nearby areas.  The natural environment, proximity to great shopping, and access to major highways make the City of Whiteville a wonderful place to call home.We have established this website to provide you with a variety of information and useful services.  Please feel free to explore the website and provide us with any questions or comments you may have.Thank you for visiting our site.  I hope you soon make plans to visit our little city in the near future.
