Monkey Junction, an unincorporated area, is located in Wilmington at the intersection of College Road (NC 132) and Carolina Beach Road (US 421).
The intersection has been named Monkey Junction for over 70 years, thanks to a local gas station. The gas station that kept actual live monkeys in hopes to attract tourists and customers, was stationed there from the late 1930's to the 1970's. The name has stuck to the area ever since!
Now, the Monkey Junction area offers a variety of shops and restaurants and a wide array of residential homes to anyone who seeks to live on the southern end of Wilmington.
