Colonial Dames dedicate archives room at the Burgwin-Wright House
WILMINGTON — The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America (NSCDA-NC) in the State of North Carolina held a dedication ceremony Nov. 17 for a new room devoted to housing the organization’s archives and library.
Located above the detached kitchen of the Burgwin-Wright House, the Nimocks Special Collections room is named in memory of the late Elisabeth Holt Burns Nimocks of Fayetteville. At the time of her death in 2014, Nimocks had been an exemplary member of the NSCDA-NC for more than 60 years. After holding a variety of offices in the state society, Nimocks was named to the national society’s roll of honor in 2011.
