THE LEGEND OF THE DRAM TREE
Just off the east bank of the Cape Fear River,near the site of the current state port, the Dram Tree- a large cypress draped in Spanish moss and survivor of countless storms- was a landmark for colonial mariners.
Sighting the tree meant home and safety within reach, with a dram of rum to celebrate the successful passage.
The tree was lost in the 1940's, but lives on in our imagination as a symbol of home, safety and refuge.
Dram Tree Realty strives to honor this heritage by providing a welcome home to our clients; both seasoned Wilmingtonians and newcomers.
