Supply, North Carolina, is situated near the intersections of Ocean Highway (US 17) and Southport-Supply Road/Green Swamp Road (NC211) in Brunswick County. As an unincorporated community of slightly more than 11,800 people, the town is not governed by its own municipal corporation. Instead, it is administered by Brunswick County.
The community was named Supply because the nearby Lockwood’s Folly River was used as a trade route throughout the 1700 to 1800s. Residents of nearby communities, including Caswell Beach, Holden Beach, Oak Island, Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach would travel to Supply to pick up materials and goods.
People living in these communities still choose to commute to Supply to go shopping. Retailers in the town of Southport and commercial districts in the Intracoastal Waterway give them more options if they don’t want to make the drive, however.
Supply is served by three elementary schools and one high school: Supply Elementary School, Cedar Grove Middle School, Holden Beach Christian Academy and Brunswick County Early College High School.

Fort Apache is a unique museum situated on Stone Chimney Road. It encompasses a full 28 acres and you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled when you step onto the property if you hope to taken in even a fraction of what is on display.
Owned by Dale Varnam, Fort Apache is a former family junkyard that was transformed into a showroom for theatrical and studio productions. It also features a large bus called the Crack Head Express that warns visitors to “stay off the rock.” Telling young people about the dangers of drug use is something that Varnam feels strongly about. His collection includes items from productions of several movies – and the collection can only be described as odd and fascinating.
