Jan Johnson and Pat Wright formed GroundSwell Pictures in 2014 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with a four-pronged mission: to make films, show films, teach filmmaking, and support filmmakers.


Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex


The museum, which is part of the NC Dept. of Natural and Cultural Resources, opened in June of 1988, and since that time acquired and restored the 1897 Poe House and constructed a steel semblance of one of the arsenal’s four octagonal towers. In addition, the c.1840 Culbreth House was moved on site and restored. Combined with the museum proper, these historical resources spread nearly seven acres to create a historical complex unparalleled in the southeastern United States. The region’s rich and diverse history come to life for visitors through exhibitions, living-history programs, demonstrations, and other activities.
