“The Strawberry Capital of the World”
Chadbourn, NC is located at the intersection of US Highway 74/76 and Highway 410. It is approximately 54 miles west of Wilmington, NC. Only 10 miles from the SC state line, Chadbourn is about a 50 minute drive to World Famous Myrtle Beach.
In the early 1900’s, Chadbourn was nicknamed “The Sunny South Colony”. The main crop in Chadbourn was Strawberries. Although there are plenty of strawberries around during the annual festival, there are not nearly as many (hundreds of train loads) as there were back then. Chadbourn was dubbed “The Strawberry Capitol of the World’. The Strawberry Festival has been the largest agricultural festival in the state for many years now.
Chadbourn is the boyhood home of Broadway and Film star, Ben Vereen. He still has family who reside in Chadbourn. Chadbourn’s current population is approximately 2000, with half living in the city limits and half living outside the city limits.
