Masonboro Sound was an area of New Hanover County where people would go for the summer to get away from the heat and enjoy the ocean breezes. There they could enjoy coastal activities like fishing, boating, and family gathering. Homes were first built in the area in the 18th and 19th centuries. William Hooper had a summer home on Masonboro sound; he was one of three signers of the Declaration of Independence from N.C. Another home called Live Oaks was built in 1912 for Walter Parsley as a permanent residence; it was designed by Henry Bacon, who was the architect for the Lincoln Memorial.
