Strolling Down History at Kure Beach Pier
When you stroll down Kure Beach Pier, you stroll down history. As the oldest pier on the coast of the Atlantic, it spans over 700 feet. Originally built in 1923 by L.C. Kure, Kure Beach Pier began as a dream to build an entertainment area complete with several bars, cottages, and bathhouses. Local pine trees were used as the pilings and eventually, marine borers wore the wood down the first year to the point that the pier fell.
