In this area stood the main base camp for Fort Holmes's garrison troops, and the headquarters of Colonel John J. Hedrick, 40th Regiment NC Troops. The barracks and storehouses were made largely of red cedar lumber and shingles, hewed from Bald Head Island trees. Confederate soldiers destroyed Fort Holmes when they evacuated Bald Head on January 16, 1865.
