Odell Williamson and Mannon C. Gore were visionaries who could see the future for Brunswick County in ways others couldn’t even dream.
In the 1950s, the two men made lifetime-worthy investments. The former business partners purchased land that would become Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach.
Last week on Friday, Gore was honored for his forward thinking and planning with the naming of the new high-rise bridge in Sunset Beach in his honor. The high-rise span stretching to Ocean Isle Beach has previously been named in Williamson’s honor.
