The Straits

Water Feature


No votes yet

The Straits is that body of water extending from the mouth of North River to Core Sound. The spelling of the Straits is shown on early maps as "Straights". It was probably changed when cartographers noticed the name was not applicable to a water course, which is spelled "straits," meaning "narrows."
