Mention Cedar Point, NC, and most locals think of the famous Octagon House that was built in Cedar Point by Edward Hill. With its unique architecture and picturesque setting, it has fascinated visitors and residents alike since 1859. Much has changed since the Hill family owned their plantation, but family values and hard work are still a strong part of this tight knit community.

Cedar Point is known for its small businesses, many of which have been family owned and operated for years. NC Hwy. 24, the "main drag," is dotted with a wide variety of shops and service businesses. For an area of approximately 1,300 residents, business is bustling.

Local produce stands are a popular fixture in Cedar Point. Visitors drive from miles around to get what locals might sometimes take for granted: locally grown fruits and vegetables. 

One thing none of them ever take for granted... A Bogue Sound Watermelon is always well worth the trip to Carteret County. Since they can only be successfully grown in land surrounding Bogue Sound, they will continue to be a draw to the area for many years to come.

Chartered in 1988, Cedar Point was named for the cedar trees that lined NC Hwy. 24 for many years. Recent hurricanes have claimed many of these majestic trees but the picturesque views of Bogue Sound, the White Oak River, and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway still remain.

Exploring the area is easy. Boaters can launch directly into the Intracoastal Waterway via the NC Wildlife Resources Commission Boat Ramp on NC Hwy. 24. Another NC Wildlife Boat Ramp is available at Western Park off Old N.C. 58. Water adventurers can explore the Croatan National Forest using the Saltwater Adventure Trail, the only national forest saltwater trail in the United States. The Croatan National Forest can also be explored using the Cedar Point Trail.
