Where is the geographical center of Wilmington? And New Hanover?

Ken Little

Here’s the “center” of our little world in Wilmington and New Hanover County, according to county IT Manager Mike Arkinson:

The “Mean Center” of the city of Wilmington is -77 53’ 12.019W/34 12’ 36.817N. That location is approximately 70 feet southeast of the intersection of Oleander Drive and College Road.

The “Mean Center” of New Hanover County is -77 52’ 57.932W/34 13’ 47.831N. That location is approximately 217 feet southwest of the intersection of Crete Drive and Clemson Drive.
