Ignore what firemen, postal carriers, and librarians tell you. This is Monkey Junction; Myrtle Grove is off to the southeast. The neighbors just wanted to sound more sophisticated. Never mind that hardly anyone knows where the name came from in the first place. It just sounds weird.

The intersection of College Road and Carolina Beach Road has an interesting history. Go to the incorrectly-named library and do a little research. Authors H. G. Hiiaka and Daisy Ayrshire have collected a box full of area pictures and stories. It's on the bottom shelf near the windows, under 9.


Notes: This is a microbox with a micro logbook. Unscrew the logbook to stamp in. Note how everything fits into the box before taking things out -- they only go back in one way! Please log finds on
