Hickory Star Resort and Marina will be celebrating its 75th anniversary in a few years. The history of the marina goes back to 1947 and possibly further, but no one associated with the marina today can recall. Justin Noah is the current manager.
“I have a photo dated 1947,” said Noah. “The marina may date back before that but I can’t find any records or older photos.”
This history was told to me by people who were not there at the beginning, but who have gained their knowledge from stories passed down. If it differs from what our readers know, I apologize.
