Topsail Beach has become the place to be on a hot day or a warm summer evening. Please forward old photos or any information on the beach area. I believe there were houses or fishing sheds on the eastern and western side of the beach. Also there was a hotel on the eastern end and at one time there was a regatta held there.
It is now called Topsail Beach Rotary Park.
