Welcome to Monkey Junction!
Outsiders frequently chuckle when they hear locals talk about Monkey Junction. It’s a funny name for a popular and growing section of southern New Hanover County, which is also referred to as Myrtle Grove.
Once a quiet rural community, Monkey Junction is now home to major commercial development, including restaurants, strip malls and big-box retailers. There are schools, a library and a fire department in the area, which began at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and South College Road, Wilmington [Map this].
Monkey Junction has always been unincorporated, but the city of Wilmington is forging ahead with annexation plans. See the bottom of this post for a link.
Monkey Junction is named for a popular tourist attraction at a gas station in that area in the 1950s: a live monkey that belonged the owners. Word spread and people would stop on their way to the beach to see the animal.
