Topsail Beach History 

Like many of the other coastal towns that line the North Carolina coast, Topsail Beach has a history all its own. Legend has it that the name originates from the 1700s, when pirates would hide in the waterway nearby the interior island, lying in wait to ambush passing merchant ships on the ocean side. Since the merchants were always wary of seeing the top sail of a pirate vessel across the dunes, the name Topsail Island was born, though this is in dispute, and the other side of the story is not quite as interesting. 

Before the start of WWII, all of Topsail Island was only reachable by boat. Though many locals made their way over for picnics and beach outings, and rumor has it that some farmers drove their livestock across the water to graze on wild grasses, it was not really developed until the U.S. Navy took over the island, beginning a joint research project with Johns Hopkins University, named Operation Bumblebee.  

To facilitate the operation, a storage facility for rockets and rocket parts was built on the sound side of the island, and launching pads were placed oceanfront. Concrete observation towers were constructed all over the island, to monitor these early beginnings of the space/guided missile program that made Topsail Beach the site of more than 200 rocket launches. This eventually led to the building of the Topsail Beach Missiles and More Museum. 

Today, some of the concrete observation towers remain in use as businesses and private residences, and one of the launching pads is now a patio at a local businessOf course, when the U.S. Navy built roads, dredged the waterway and brought fresh water onto the island, development inevitably followed and the town was eventually incorporated, in 1963.
