What better time to sit down with two
generations of Boney menfolk to unravel
the history of a clan of architects, the early
beginnings of a family-owned firm and
its contributions to Wilmington’s built
environment. If dynasty defines one family’s
rule from one generation to the next, then
the term fits the Boney legacy that dates
back to the 1920s up until the 21st century.
And then on to Nantucket, well not
actually, but this month’s featured home
on the Intracoastal Waterway borrows
its bone structure from the sturdy
styles that anchored New England’s
rocky coast. The exquisitely crafted
Nantucket baskets we discovered, also
inspired by that famed New England isle,
were handmade here in the Cape Fear
area. You’ll not want to miss either.
Page by page, the stories are beautifully
photographed, eloquently written and
expertly edited and designed to bring you
with us on this journey into the high season!
Untie the lines and get going, it’s time
for a boat ride!
