Local Weather

Located in southeastern North Carolina's Coastal Plain, Whiteville, N.C. is known for friendly people and easy living.  Downtown Whiteville is famous for great shopping, personal service and convenience, as well as fabulous hamburgers!   And of course, we're right on the way to the beach, too! 

The Whiteville Downtown Development Commission is made up of a membership of merchants & business people who are located in the heart of downtown. 

Not only do we have a  huge shopping area, the Whiteville City Schools Administration offices are located downtown, along with the Greater Whiteville Chamber of Commerce, Employment Security Office, Whiteville City Hall, Southeastern Community College classes are held downtown, Waccamaw Bank's Training and Operations Center and their Bankshares headquarters, and the Columbus County Arts Council.  Also, near City Hall is the N.C. Forestry Museum and the offices of The News Reporter  and regional headquarters for B.B. & T.  And of course the focal point of the downtown area is the Vineland Station Depot, a historical landmark recently remodeled and restored to a beautiful facility now used as a community events center! 

W.D.D.C. was created to help stimulate the economic development and growth of the downtown area and today takes pride in helping to stage events that encourage visitors to "Come Home to Downtown Whiteville!"  Our 25 member board of directors with an on-site local director meets monthly to discuss promotion, development and recruitment in the downtown area.  The N.C. Pecan Harvest Festival held the first weekend in November annually attracts 10-12,000 people to the downtown area. Over 125 merchants, corporations and individuals are members of W.D.D.C. and the list is growing!

The Whiteville Downtown Development Commission, located in the Vineland Depot and is working daily to make it easy for you to "Come Home to Downtown Whiteville!"
