A lot can happen in 50 years. Just ask any of the original residents of Ocean Isle Beach.
Ocean Isle Beach was a 7-mile stretch of pure beach some 50 years ago. When Odell Williamson and M.C. Gore purchased the island in 1953, they sold only a handful of lots before Hurricane Hazel hit the following year and wiped away most if the island’s initial developments.
Over time, the town rebuilt and grew into one of the best restored beaches in the country, according to the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association.
