Welcome to Whiteville

With a population of more than 5,000 residents, Whiteville serves as the county seat for Columbus County.  Named for the original owner of the town site, James B. White, in 1810, the bustling city lies along major thoroughfares U.S. 74 between Lumberton and Wilmington, U.S. 76 from Florence, SC to Wilmington, and U.S. Route 701 from Elizabethtown to Conway, SC.

Whiteville has a vibrant downtown, Vineland Village, home to unique restaurants and shops.  The beautifully restored, Vineland Station built in 1903, is one of North Carolina’s original brick depots and serves as the town’s civic center. The active downtown development committee provides support to downtown businesses and events.  Read More

On behalf of the City of Whiteville, Welcome!                                                            

I would like to welcome you to the City of Whiteville and whitevillenc.gov. The citizens of Whiteville have a great amount of pride in their city. Established in 1833, Whiteville is home to locally-owned businesses, prime farmland and city schools working together to create a charming, quaint southern city with a story to tell 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, where children and youth can grow and develop. It is a wonderful location for retirement due to our geographical location. Whiteville is approximately forty-five minutes away from 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.  

I hope you will make plans to visit Whiteville in the near future.  

Sincerely, Mayor Terry Mann
