The Cotton Exchange

The cotton exchange is a compound of eight restored buildings that serves as a shopping mall. One of the buildings was built as a mill at the end of the 19th century, and later became the house of the thriving cotton export business. From Wilmington port, the Southern cotton was sent to Europe and America.

The other buildings hosted restaurants, grocery shops, banks, and other businesses. Today it all contains 30 restaurants and shops with the style and feel of 19th century days.
