Northwest, North Carolina

Welcome to Northwest




Welcome to the city of Northwest's website; electronic home of our government.

Northwest is located in the northwestern end of Brunswick County, which is one of the fastest growing counties in the state. The City of Northwest was incorporated in 1993. We're just 5 minutes off of Highway 74. The city limits encompass 7.05 square miles farmland and residential areas. However there is little farming now. Our current population is 837.

Our city is close to the Cape Fear River. In fact, we are only 20 minutes away from the NC State Port located in Wilmington, NC. The North Carolina Natural Gas Line runs through our city adjacent to the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad. We're approximately an hour away from the beautiful Brunswick County, Wrightsville, and Carolina beaches. Our public schools are about 15 minutes away and Roger Bacon Academy (a new chartered school) is just 5 minutes away.
