Watha, NC

Pros: I remember that the first courthouse for Pender County
was at Watha...

This is a good place to Start some kind of business as it is close to the ll7
and I 40.

General info: I no longer live in Watha, but I have a deep love for that
little town and would love to see it prosper and grow
instead of shrinking.
