The Promise Land
Discover Promise Land
For those who want to be close to it all while still enjoying a sense of peace and community connection, there is The Promise Land. Set in the heart of historic Morehead City just steps from the shops and restaurants of the bustling waterfront, The Promise Land is a charming and close-knit community dating back to the 1880s when fishermen relocated from the Shackleford Banks to escape devastating hurricanes. Comprised of beautiful historic homes and charming summer cottages dating back to the 1940s, The Promise Land is the ideal vacation getaway for those seeking an affordable, convenient, and scenic community.
The homes of The Promise Land are mostly quaint and cozy older homes, cottages, and bungalows, though there are some truly unique historic finds and larger, more luxurious homes within the neighborhood. Spacious yet easy-to-maintain yards are common, and there are a selection of homes that sit along the Bogue Sound. Many of these waterfront homes also feature docks.
Enjoy the sense of peace and neighborly connection within the community… and an unbeatable location steps from the Morehead City waterfront! Walk to shopping and dining, the Carteret Community Theatre, Jaycee Park, the History Museum of Carteret County, and much more. Don’t miss the Promise Land Festival, a celebration of heritage and history, held every two years.
