Fostering Neighborliness in Our Historic Community Since 1973
Residents of Old Wilmington, Inc. is a not-for-profit downtown neighborhood association. ROW has been fostering neighborliness in our historic community for over forty years. Membership provides a delightful opportunity to meet and socialize with your neighbors.
Over the years ROW has influenced many policy issues and contributed to numerous community projects. The following is only a partial listing of its varied accomplishments:
- Donating resources to beautification projects including Market and Castle Streets, the Southern Hospitality sculpture downtown, the urban park adjacent to the main library, the City's matching grant tree program, brick street restoration, and the Tileston School brick wall.
- Providing support to several downtown cultural institutions: the Railroad Museum, Bellamy Mansion, the Burgwin-Wright House, Thalian Hall, and the Historic Wilmington Foundation.
- Collaborating with public and private organizations working to resolve some of the problems that plague downtown neighborhoods (DARE, Downtown Community Watch, Wilmington Historic Preservation Commission and Downtown Wilmington Association).
- Creating social bonds by hosting an annual holiday party, summer picnic and fall membership party.
