History of Bolivia North Carolina

Bolivia is a town in Brunswick County, North Carolina, and a smaller suburb of Southport. With an estimated population of around 7,000, Bolivia can keep that small town ‘charm’ that has earned its nickname ‘the peak of good living.’

The town of Bolivia was incorporated in 1911. The ‘peak of good living’ is derived directly from the town of Boliva.  Bolivia North Carolina’s real growth began in the 1950s with the development of Sunny Point, a military munitions depot near Southport NC. In the 2020s Bolivia, North Carolina’s population is expected to double to over 20,000. Today, Bolivia, NC is home to an estimated population of 12,000.

Bolivia North Carolina’s growth moves west with new communities like Bella Point (below) and increased infrastructures, such as the newly established Charter School and other major commercial developments.
