Hampstead, North Carolina is located just north of Wilmington and inland of Topsail Island. Hampstead is prized for its convenience and access to the waterways, its golf courses and golf communities, and its proximity to the local beaches as well as the city of Wilmington.
Hampstead remained largely unnoticed for decades as newcomers arrived relocating a bit farther south to the city of Wilmington. Hampstead was little more than a fuel stop for those travelling Route 17 to and from Jacksonville. Friends told friends who then began to look beyond the boundaries of Wilmington for home sites. Hampstead real estate was suddenly identified as the up and coming place to live. Individuals who wanted to enjoy a bit of rural and small town lifestyle, while still remaining accessible to the amenities of a city found the perfect solution in Hampstead.
Hampstead's schools boast a reputation beyond the Pender County line. A reputation of excellence and modern facilities has enticed many to move across the county line simply for the education benefit alone. The town's premier event, The Spot Festival, is held annually at Topsail High School certifying the claim that Hampstead is "the seafood capital of the Carolinas”. The festival is hosted by the Hampstead Volunteer Fire Department and in support of the five schools in the Hampstead area.
