Monkey Junction Area Homes

testingFormally known as "Myrtle Grove Junction" in the late 1920s, the intersection of Highway 421 and Highway 132 became more commonly referred to as Monkey Junction. The name  originated from a popular tourist attraction which served as a gas station back in the 1930s. A live monkey that belonged to the owners entertained travelers passing by. Word spread and people would stop on their way to the beach to visit with the animal. As strange as the name Monkey Junction may seem, this ever-growing area of Wilmington continues to thrive and offer home owners a conveniently central location to live, work and play. Some still refer to this section of Southern New Hanover County as Myrtle Grove.
